A Nurse With Attitude

Where Dark Cynical Humor, Nursing Issues, and Politics Seem to Merge

Really Random Thoughts;

 

sponge

  We’re rapidly going into a national default.  I’m relaxed (like most Kardashian watching Americans) not a worry in the world.  Then, out of the blue, a coworker came up to me and told me that her husband was getting all weird about “the debt ceiling” and “the looming default”.  She said that he was getting all worried thinking that the veneer of society is thinner than you might think.   He said, “It wouldn’t take missing but one welfare check to throw the underclass into total anarchy.”  This got me to thinking… or it got me to worrying.  When my kids were very small, I had a shelter, several firearms, a generator, fuel,  armor,  bullet resistant vests for everyone, survival supplies, extra potable water,  medical supplies, and lots and lots of storable food and spare ammo…  (for barter of course).

 Now that my kids are grown and they can watch out for themselves.  My concerns have, pretty much evaporated.  I’ll admit, and my close friends will tell you,  In my younger days, I was a hard core survivalist.  I would even go on camping expeditions with minimal stuff  “to test” my skills and endurance.  I was part of the county search and rescue and I went to the range regularly.  Now that I’m older, I don’t seem to care that much.  I’m not the same person.  I’ve even sold off some of my supplies.  If anarchy hit today, I’d probably say, “ho hum… maybe I’ll just head down to the hospital.  Maybe now they’ll be willing to pay me some overtime.” 

 I guess it’s just depends on what stage you might be in your life.

 On the same note, but a little different… Here’s a little “Hump Day Humor”

 As I was lying around, pondering the problems of the world, I realized that at my age I don’t really give a hoot about that much anymore.

 If walking is good for your health, the postman should be immortal.

A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, but is still amazingly fat.

A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years, while

A tortoise doesn’t run at all.  He does mostly nothing, yet it  lives for 150 years.

And my doctor tell me to exercise?   Hmmm.

 Just grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to remember the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

 Now that I’m older here’s what I’ve  discovered:

1.    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of  it.

2.    My wild oats are mostly enjoyed with prunes and all-bran.

3.    I  finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.

4.    Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

5.    Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

6.    If all is not lost, then where the heck is it ?

7.    It was a whole lot easier to get older, than to get wiser.

8.    Some days, you’re the top dog, some days you’re the hydrant.

9.    I wish the buck really did stop here,  I sure could use a few of them.

10.  Kids in the back seat cause accidents.

11.  Accidents in the back seat cause kids.

12.  It’s hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.

13.  The world only beats a path to your door when you’re in the bathroom.

14.  If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.

15.  When I’m finally holding all the right cards, everyone wants to play chess.

16.  It’s not hard to meet expenses . . . they’re everywhere.

17.  The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

18.  These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter . . .I go somewhere to get something, and then suddenly wonder what I’m “here after.”

19.  Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.

20.  Uh… oh yea, have I  posted  this before?
