I don't make this stuff up!…but I do change identifying information.

Slip of the tongue August 3, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — lesbonurse @ 3:20 am

We all make stupid comments sometimes.  Yesterday’s mistake, said to the mother of a tiny newborn baby: “So, how old was he when he was born?”  D’oh.  I meant “how much did he weigh when he was born?”

My favorite slip of the tongue–by far–wasn’t made by me (I swear!).  One of my old co-workers, a heterosexual women’s health NP, had her hands on a patient’s vagina and said “Ok, now I’m just going to take a lick.  A look.  I meant a look.  Oh my god.”  I laughed for days about that.
