A Stripper's Knickers!

I'm waiting outside the hospital after a 13 hour shift
The taxi is a little late.
I am getting a taxi because the Prof needed the car to take him and Sorrel to church
Easter is a big gig apparantly
I stink like an old cart horse who has worn a stripper's knickers too long
That's intensive care at full stretch for you
Hey ho

    2. Quite the visual image. Not sure whether to laugh or feel sorry for the poor horse.

  5. That's the smell of an honest day's hard work. Remember that.

    Knickers on a carthorse, though?!

  6. You have a dark personal history if you recognise the aroma of a stripper's knickers after they have been worn by an aged carthorse. The stripper in question must have had hellishly wide thighs.

  8. Get home, shower, and hit the hay! Oh, I suppose those accursed animals must be seen to first... and then hit the hay.

  9. Isn t the church like, just down the road? Walk? And/ or get a lift from someone. I d be steaming mad waiting for a taxi. Or--they could have come and picked you up, tho I suppose you were too , uh, smelly, for the pristine new car?

    Bless you for your work, I ve been in Intensive Care, you and your coworkers are the best.

  10. "I stink like an old cart horse who has worn a stripper's knickers too long"

    That line belongs in the top 100 sentences in literature; it's epic.

  11. A long hot shower (be a devil and pinch some of the Prof's fancy shower gel), a cup of whatever you fancy, hugs all round for the four legged members of the family, then sit back and relax!
    Happy Easter John - enjoy !

  12. Hot shower, coffee laced with a stiff whisky, endless rounds of hot buttered toast and then off to bed with the fabulous four and all will be well again.
