Somebody would have failed the Craft Store's Smart test!
The ladies and I were discussing places we've lived in while growing up, freshly kicked out of the nest, newlyweds, etc.
Me: One of the dumps we lived in was a basement apartment with no heat which meant no hot water either. -In the middle of the Chicago winter. - We had to heat up water in old electric instant coffee makers and then dump the boiling water into a bucket of ice cold water which would make it lukewarm. By the time you stepped into the tub, shaking, it was already cold and with no heat in the house, frostbite would be attacking your special places.
Glynda: Oh wow. I went through the same thing when I was traveling through Europe in my 20s. We didn't have bathrooms in our rooms so we had to use the community one in the hallway. By the time I took my shower, I barely had any hot water left.
Me: ::blink blink:: It's like you and I lived identical lives!
This woman is a nurse.
If she has trouble distinguishing the difference in our two stories maybe she shouldn't be allowed near a scalpel? I mean, if a patient comes in and needs a shot of syn*visc in their left knee, will she prep the left shoulder because it's closer to her and besides 'they are the same'?
It's a serious question that may save someone's life.
