Mama didn’t raise no fool. I know that when you truly want something in this world, you have to give something in return. That’s why I showed up at work armed with a couple dozen donuts this morning. Today was my first day on my own, and I knew I had to go in and beg the charge nurse to please, please, please have mercy on my terrified soul. It’s much easier to beg people to do things for you when they’re all, “MMM DONUTS.”
Luckily for me, the proposition worked. She may very well have given me the easiest assignment on the unit today. Also luckily for me, I handled my business. I got things done on time, I had a little extra time to help my nurse-neighbors, and I didn’t have any major catastrophes to deal with. My friends, if that’s not a successful first day, I don’t know what is. Mission Survive Day #1: Accomplished. Now, on to the next mission: Mission Survive Day #2.
PS: As a bonus, I came home to find that Zack went to the liquor store today in a BUY mood. Fancy wine AND fancy tequila? DON’T MIND IF I DO.
