To my Wife:
I love you, and I thank you for helping me get Lilly out the door this morning. I enjoyed my days off with you and I didn’t want to go back to work today. We have a lot to look forward to these next couple months and I hope our “transition” is smooth and enjoyable.
To my Alarm Clock:
I hate you and I have nothing nice to say about you.
To the Night Shift:
Thank you for using my ambulance as a trash can. I’m happy to see that you were able to put it to good use. I’ll be sure to return the favor next time my unit breaks down and I have to use yours.
To the Bum asking for change at the gas pump:
I can’t give you change……change comes from within, my brother.
To the lady inside Jack-in-the-Box that felt it necessary to show me her foot:
Yes, I am a medical professional. No, that doesn’t mean I enjoy hearing your stories about diabetes and how your foot acquired all that lovely necrosis and fungus. All I REALLY wanted, was to get my large coffee and breakfast burrito.
To my normal partner that is on vacation in paradise:
Live it up, my friend. Because this lovely place will be waiting for you when you get back. I hope you catch plenty of fish, and if you don’t, at least catch a buzz. Oh, and while you’re at it, have a few more beers for me.
To the EMS Gods:
I’ll be making a sacrifice in your name, so take it easy on me today.
