This past October I spent the month at my parents house because J was going to be traveling out of town with work and most of my family had’nt met Little Roo.
While there I visited with an old friend whom I lived with for a few months after I got my first nursing job.
This was her greeting to me.
” Karen what a surprise to see you” ( as I love to just drop in with no notice, it’s more fun that way Is’nt it?)
” Wow, I haven’t seen you for a long time. I was just thinking about you the other day and thinking about the story’s you’d come home with from the Nursing Home”.
” Ya, what one were you referring to?”
friend,” the one about the missing shoe….”
I can not believe that I forgot this story. It is so embarrassing his begs to be told
Not long after I started working as a nurses aid, a co-worker and I were assisting with a residents bath. We were dressing him in the bath lift with his pants, sock and shoe on but I couldn’t find the second sock and shoe. I was looking under the towels and around the area when my co-worker asked me what I was looking for.” The other shoe,” I replied.
Both the resident and my co-worker nearly died laughing.
” He only has one leg, Karen”
So beware this christmas when you are acquainted with old acquaintances and family. You’re friends may remember the darndest things.
