Moving on up

"Moving On Up"

Has it really been 2 months since my last entry???

Well, for that, I apologize.  There is no excuse.  I will send myself to my room without dinner. (Good thing I hide some snacks in strategic places).

Here's the deal.  I have traded in my navy blues for some white shirts at the station.

For those of you who aren't in the network, still hung over from Memorial Day, or just plain don't get it , this means that I have been promoted.

Yes, sports fans, yours truly is now the boss....

 See...Moses wore a white shirt.

So, I have been REALLY busy trying to get acclaimated with the biz and all it has to offer. 

I think I will need to put some liquor in my office.

Anyways, it is the beginning of "Trauma Season" in the country which is keeping us even more so on our toes.   We have already flown  three and have not even come to the first full month of the hunt.  Good for business, bad for patients.

So, as one of my first orders to give, I am going to give you a brief list of what-not-to-do's for the up coming summer months.  Read it, know it, love it!!!

1.  Whew, it is gotten hot.  One word.....Hydrate.  Oh sure, we love to root around your arms with a needle big enough to drive a Mack truck through just to give you some unflavored Gatorade so that your temperature will fall below the Mendoza line in temperature. (A baseball reference....google it.) But I would much rather you drink when you are out in the sun (And as much as I would LOVE to include alcohol, it isn't quite what I am going for) than for me to come in my party sized disco truck and give you new meaning to the term "plug and play".

2. Click it, or ticket. Who cares that the seat belt doesn't match the color of the handbag that you are carrying today. It's your car, you should have thought of that before you bought it.  The only thing worse than getting in an accident and not having your seat belt on, is getting pulled over and getting cited for it.  I have already cut one out this month who didn't have a belt on. Let's just say he will be sipping trough a straw for quite a while.

3. OOOoooo....ahhhhhh.  Fireworks really make the night sky beautiful. So. Let's keep them there...in the sky.  Or better yet, away from you.  Lighting an M-100 and seeing how far you can throw it, ranks right up there with gas prices on the stupidity scale.  Unless you want your significant other to open your ketchup bottles for you for the rest of your life, think before you light.  Blowing your hand off and my looking for the pieces in the middle of the night isn't my idea of PAR-TAY!!!!

4. Does this make me look fat?  No, but your head split wide open and your brains (or lack there of) which are hanging down by  your knees because you thought it was cooler to ride your motorcycle without a helmet does.  Remember the three we flew? Two of them didn't have a helment.  One of them is partially paralized now.  Hey, it's up to you.

This is all for now.  I am sure to have some more insightful little nuggets for you all real soon here.

But, until then. Stay safe and use some common sense. 

Oh yeah....DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE EITHER!!!!!!!!!!

How was that for subliminal???

Rounding Third and Heading Home,
