Life has been interesting. I have been on call, had another fender bender and finally went to the neighboring city to obtain the car from the first wreck a month ago. I almost titled this “Dubious Distinction” after a comment from a med aide in a facility where I work.
MA: It’s been a day
Me: Yes, and I was here at 0640 this morning
MA: Well, I have had 2 crappy days, but you have worked 12 hours and had a wreck, so you have had the crappiest day.

That is one award on which I would like to pass, but experience is the dictator of reality and Monday came. Monday for us means that we – the RN and I – are no longer on call. Can you imagine looking forward to Monday morning? It seems weird, but we did.
