sunshine and puppies!!
soon after i got to the ER i needed to get a patient ready to send up to the floor. as i was trying to remove stickers and monitor stuff i must have given a tug. this lady curses, "dammit that hurt" and then begins to pray for forgiveness for swearing and then apologizes to me repeatedly. now i started dropping the f-bomb myself in 4th grade so dammit doesn't even really qualify as a swear word. i think i said something like, "no big deal, don't worry about it" cause i hear swearing all the time!!
this lady then says, "no you don't understand, I'm Mormon, we don't swear!" i wanted to say i grew up Mormon and i heard the word dammit come out of plenty of Mormons mouths. but i just again said there was really no need to apologize for saying dammit in my presence...at this point she insisted i forgive her for saying dammit....so you are forgiven...turn back roll eyes.
this wasn't appreciated by my father though and i believe this was a rare spanking that i received. this was my reaction to my father taking my male siblings to yet another sporting event...this time the Lakers. in retrospect it really had nothing to do with my desire to go to a Laker game, it did have everything to do with my desire to spend quality time with my father. that didn't happen and instead i got a spanking. i've never been to a Laker game in my life. fyi.
i'm in Alaska and from that sentence i can tell you those poor people are dead...you don't need a medical examiner for that diagnosis. the original article went on for many sentences/paragraphs in this vein. it doesn't appear they are breathing...not sure if there are fatalities at this time. strange but i wish i'd printed it out. we are sick i know, but it was pretty strange and funny.
was happy to read that the mosque that he worshipped in condemned this act and was clear that this behaviour is not a part of Islam teachings. it is good to hear more and more people of that faith speaking out.
