Today, one of the nurses gave me a gift.
I will often tell people that “I wish I had a magic wand, I’d wave it and make you all better…” followed by a more earthly plan of action. This is sometimes amusing to the staff.
Not as amusing as giving an EM doc a magic wand in a busy ED. Much conversation ensued. The funniest had to do with a conversation amongst the techs about where to store it. “With the anoscopes” was the answer, and I hope they were kidding.
Now, if I only had the power to wield it!
