A Little Squirt

You get a bit sweaty on night shifts.... and in a fit of tiredness I'd forgotten my clinique ." HAPPY" !!!!...and so perspiring like Blanche duBois I looked around the office and staff loo to see if I could find an suitable nice smelling squirty.
In the office I located a somewhat exotic sounding lady spray called "orchid myst" and gave myself and my uniform a good seeing to.
It didnt smell too perfumed I thought moments later only to realise that orchid myst was exactly that..an effing
mist for effing orchids!!!!
Pure nutrient solution, pest repellent, plant tonic and leaf conditioner ......for orchids !!!!!

    Oops! That might be helpful in some ways during spring and summer, but perhaps not so much in November in the Northern Hemisphere. Perhaps you should get a pocket size smell-pretty to tuck into your pocket or your lunch bag?

    How did the fur-babies react to that?

      Oh, Andi, you've reminded me of putting Pepto Bismol (a disgusting flavor) on an itchy mosquito bite when I intended to use Calamine lotion. I couldn't yet read at the time so when my mother told me what I'd done by mistake - both were pink - I washed the awful Pepto Bismol off my leg in a hurry!

    The genus name for orchids - orkhis, is Ancient Greek for testicles. The spray could have been worse John...

  30. This is priceless! Oh, you misty orchid, you! And of course, we all know that the orchid is represented in the male body by his most precious parts so not entirely inappropriate.

  31. Do you remember nitro paste, before nitro patches? You had to measure it out onto a piece of paper and then attach it to the patient. I had a student nurse who asked me if she should put it on the patient's toothbrush.

      When I was still working, some doctors continued to use Nitro Paste as they considered it a more accurate dose. Those were the days, my friend!

  49. Just last week I brushed my teeth with Neosporin, or rather our local supermarket chain's generic equivalent of it in an unfamiliar colored tube. I think I would have recognized Neosporin in its regular form.
