My sister’s university graduation (she graduated from one of the top nursing schools in the nation) was last weekend. It was brilliant. I am so proud of her. Not because she graduated but because of what she did at her celebration lunch…..
Male cousin: Hey, what color of nail polish is that?
Sister: Grayish purple. Duh. Can’t you tell? What color is that? (Points to his shirt, pokes him)
Male cousin: Um…you just touched my nipple.
Sister: (Turns a violent shade of red) Oh my goodness.
Male cousin: Hey! She just touched my nipple!
Lots of laughter
Sister: Well, I am a nurse. Think of it as a breast exam.
Male cousin: Can you do those?
Sister: Yes. Of course.
Male Cousin: Ok, have at it.
My sister then proceeds to give my cousin a breast exam in the restaurant. Which I think means she is going to be a stellar nurse because you never know when someone may need an impromptu breast exam. My cousin laughed through the whole thing- he said it was because it was awkward but I think he’s just ticklish. What could be less awkward than an accidental breast exam? I mean, had she not accidently touched his nipple, he could have gone years without a breast exam. Who knows what would have happened then??? As it was, he was lump free- yay!!
So, I just want to take this time to say congrats to all the new nurses out there- I hope all of your careers can begin with breast exams in restaurants. Cheers!
