Night shift. Phone rings so I answered.
Me: “Pediatric and Female Unit, Good morning!”
Male Nurse: “Hi, good morning. This is Justine from ER.”
Me: (Mouthing “Oh, My God!”) “Hellooo…”
Justine: “Who is this?”
Me: “Um, yes this is Rouselle…”
Justine: “We have a patient for admission. Can we shift the patient now?”
Few minutes later, Justine came in with his patient.
Justine: “This is a case of a 2 year old girl who drowned from a C.”
Me: “Huh? Basin?”
Justine: (Trying to hide his smile) “No…C.”
Then everybody in the Nurse’s station started laughing nonstop including Justine, which made me blush beet red.
Other Nurse: (In between laughing) “Why would someone , ahahaha, drown from a basin…ahahaha, much less a sink? AHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Justine: “If the patient drowned from a sink, you have to flush that patient, no? Ahahahahaha!!!”
Other Nurse: “He said SEA! Ahahahahaha!!!”
Me: “Shuhada! He should’ve pronounced it as SEE no? Not SI! Hmp!”
I’ve changed my mind. He’s no longer my crush. He’s not even that cute when he’s laughing, HMP!”
LESSON LEARNED: When in front of your crush, don’t lose your head.
