prick and dress this in the office. Treat it and street it. Bam! Ten minutes. • Bacon. Wimpy and limpy describes a student on the first day in the surgery rotation. Firm and crispy describes a scrub tech or circulator ready to do it all the first day after orientation. • Sausage patty. Experienced with a little spice that can go head to head with whatever happens to the egg. It's also flexible enough to mix it up with different procedures. • Sausage link. The shift leader linking a tech and circulator with a specific surgeon to get the case done and "outta" here. • Ham. Works nicely with Dr. Red Eye Gravy. Some staff also like to ham it up when boasting about all they've done and seen. • Toast. The sopper-upper of all things runny. Or it's you (You're toast!) when it's your fault that everything is runny. Think charred or burnt. • Biscuits. As in flaky. The new old nurse looking for her new ex-hus- band is about as real as a roll of compressed dough that you just pop in the oven. She's got her sights on an anesthesiologist, and the general sur- geon and the plastic surgeon. Can't find her? Look where Dr. Doing-His- Job is and you'll find her. • Pancakes. Sometimes it only takes a short stack to get that over- whelming case done. I'll pour all the maple syrup gratitude I can thank- ing them for getting me out of the sunny-side up and scrambled mess. Best part of waking up I might rethink skipping a good breakfast during the work week. I can't go walking into the proverbial lion's den of the OR lightly. I need to start with a good breakfast. And at least 2 cups of coffee to make me fit to work with. OSM Contact Ms. Watkins at pwatkins12@comcast.net. J U L Y 2 0 1 9 • O U T PA T I E N T S U R G E R Y. N E T • 1 2 9
