"Not me! "Monday

I absolutely did not innocently crouch down in front of a standing patient to look at what he told me was an infected leg wound (thinking he meant lower leg) and have him DROP HIS PANTS so when I looked straight ahead, all I saw was "Jockey" ...and shadows of "the brothers." I did not nearly die of embarrassment. And this did not happen in front of a room full of patients. Jaws were dropping a-plenty at the sight of the whitie-tighties. I did not maintain a perfectly professional demeanor (35 years of practice!) and get those pants back up as quickly as possible - then die laughing when the coast was clear. Whoa.

I did not eat an entire container of chipotle hummus with pita chips in one sitting. I called it a "healthy meal," just to justify it. Oink.

I did not tearfully grieve the loss of a dear friend this week; the gentle man who gave Ron Burgundy his first real job. His work remains here on earth through all the lives he touched personally and professionally; his soul is with our Lord. Heaven in Hi-Def, and cameras in His Courts.

I did not maintain my composure on the outside (but bubble like a total groupie on the inside) when I got to visit with Tom Brokaw this week while they were airing "Meet the Press." Just another guy who puts his pants on one leg at a time...oh yeah. And his dog is so well-behaved. Gotta love a guy who loves his dog.

I did not stay up waaayyy after a normal bed time last night doing the Law and Order marathon because I am on vacation, and for the first time in many months have absolutely no reason to get up before noon. And I did not pop a Benadryl, just to prolong the the blessed sleep. And I did not wake up at 0700, only to be bright-eyed and bushy tailed (ok, I'm half right) and not be able to get back to sleep. I'm an old dog; this "sleeping in" is a new trick.

Now where's MckMama's Mr. Linky? Please continue passionate God talk for her and baby Stellan this week. This is the week of his birth!

Tea today: Yogi with triple echinacea

Ok.. the "jockey and two brothers" is hilarious! My boys call it lots of things, but I've never heard those. Ha ha.

Found you on MckMama's website and wanted to check out your Not Me's! They're great.

WHAT?!?!? Chipotle Hummus is TOTALLY healthy. Come ON! I've had Hummus with fresh salsa every day for lunch for the past week!! Beans??? Hello??? PROTEIN! Sheesh.

I woulda laughed out loud at the guy or said something completely wonderful like - I don't actually work on my knees. HA! That's naughty. Pretend I didn't say it.

Haha! I used to work in a dialysis clinic, I can totally see the pants thing happening. Good for your maintaining composure in the face of fame.

Hey there, it's so nice to "meet" you!

I'm so blessed to be meeting some of Amie's friends. You guys are AMAZING!

Now, your "NMM" post - what HOOT!

Okay, You met (did you even say you KNOW) Tom Brokaw?????? WOW!!!!!

While we were at St. Jude there were LOTS of celebrities in and out. I'd always try to rush Brent over for a photo. None of my guys were ever amused with famous folks.. but me.. that's a different story. LOL!

Oh my goodness! Who isn't guilty of eating a whole container of something in one sitting? My vice is ice-cream. I also love how we can all justify the behavior sooo easily.

What a week you had. Crotch in the face and meeting Tom Brokaw! Is this just another week for you or are things always this interesting? (LOL)

I'm an NP and I agree, there are just too many men willing to show off the whitey tighteys and the brothers!! No, anxious to show them off! I can so commiserate!

OMGoodness.. girl you are cracking me up. I am so proud of you for keeping your composure.. I would NOT have.. and I would have felt bad for a very long time.

And where can I get some of that hummus? YUM!

You are too cute!
