Medical Professional

When I was little I wanted to be a nurse. When I grew up and started college I wanted to be a Radiologic Technologist. Or a Diagnostic Ultrasound Technologist. Then I found out that even people taking x-rays or doing ultrasound on patients have to deal with very personal health care situations.
I'm easily grossed out. I don't want to touch, see, or smell puke, mucus of any kind, pee, poop, or saliva. Blood I'm okay with, but not any of that other stuff. I wouldn't mind giving people shots or stitching up their cuts or taking care of newborns.
I wouldn't like cleaning up some poor drunk who fell off a curb and cut open his forehead, and then have him puke on my shoes while I was stitching him up. That would pretty much suck as a job.
The medical field is not for me. I'm glad I figured that out before I spent a lot of time and money learning how to do any of it.


  1. You could combine Bank Teller with Medical Profession and work in a Sp??m Bank.

  2. LOL Bob...
    I'm with you on the gross smelly stuff, AW.
    I was a nurse's aide many years ago, and you sort of become immune to it, but not really.
    gross is gross.

  3. ew Bob..thats the worst human body fluid ever! LOLOL

  4. Amy - Who is Gabby? Do I know her?

    Gabby - I'm Amy's Hunky Bob. I've known her since birth. Her's. Not mine.

  5. I'm one of Amy's BFFs. She taught my kids in seminary. We eat tacos together. Very nice to meet you! I enjoy your posts a lot - they always either make me smile or bust a gut laughing. :o)

  6. I'm that uncle that everyone stops breathing when he's around because they never know what he might say.

    I try to be good, but there are just too many naughty things that float around in my head.

  7. Bob, Gabby has a naughty mind, too - that's what makes her such a fun friend to hang out with! : ) See ya tomorrow, D!
