    Did a mass removal on a 140 pound dog last week. It was his inner thigh so a stupid spot. Sutures pulled open. When we sedated him to clean and resuture because he’s huge we set up on the treatment room floor.

    The next morning (dog name changed for anonymity):

    Me: I think I pulled a muscle in my ass doing Wilson on the floor yesterday.

    vet tech: do you think maybe you might want to rephrase that?

    J was making stuffed peppers and without thinking cut both ends off the pepper like he was going to chop it. So we had 3 stuffed peppers and 1 long strip of pepper with filling on it. :lol:

    Three adults, me and mama and papa, stared way too long at the clock until one of us was confident enough to say what time it was right that minute.

    Y'all. I'm a damn Three Stooges highlight reel. Just now, I scanned my patient's wristband and caught the bottom of my face shield in the spiral cord. I tried to pull it off, but it somehow kept pulling up. Yeah, I looked like a damn fool. At least we all got a good laugh.

    This. I was driving to work today and frantically grabbed my phone halfway there to triple check that it was actually Thursday.

    Answering calls and instead of saying “who do I have the pleasure of speaking with?” I said

    “who do I have the pleasure of sleeping with” :sad:

    D: “They’re not scary! They’re drinking piña coladas at Trader Vic’s. That’s, like, the least scary thing.”

    I’ve always liked D but his knowledge of those lyrics makes me like him even more.

    I wrestled to the ground with a tension mounted baby gate and I lost. Basically I tripped into a closed gate and landed wrist-first on the gate.

    It hurts, but I can appreciate the physical comedy.

    Addendum: if I broke my wrist, then applying pressure wouldn’t make it hurt less, right?

    There are many types of breaks

    I went to open the baby gate last night with my foot (to swing it open - I had already unlatched it) and smashed my second toe square into the half wall. It’s still bugging me today. Stupid baby gates.

    If it hurts tomorrow, I’m guessing I’ll need an x-ray? Twisting my hand is hell.

    RICE applies regardless. Take some ibuprofen.

    Oh no, I hope it’s not seriously hurt :sad:

    Next entry: I learned what RICE stands for today. :lol:

    Lol! My work here is done.

    (but seriously if you remain concerned no harm in getting checked out. Many urgent cares or dr offices have an X-ray on site, so you may not need to go to the hospital and deal with all the Covid rigamarole. Call ahead to find out)

    Nerve conduction and the way our brains interpret pain is weird! Sometimes applying pressure serves to “block” pain because your brain is preoccupied with the new sensation you’re sending its way.

    I assume thats why it works to rub your arm or leg or whatever when you bang it really hard too

    I’m not renewing my prime in November so I’m trying to watch all the ghost story shows I can but I never learn to not watch them alone in the dark after a glass of wine.

    Thank you for asking! Not great, but I have high hopes for some restorative sleep.
