Planes, Trains, and Fake Eyes

Well i finally made a blog. Is that right? Is that how i say it, made a blog? Anyway, after a great afternoon with my wife, I decided to start blogging. I don not really know about what... mostly ems and fire related stuff, probably some awesome stories about how my job in private ems is not mind-numbingly boring... on that note


Last patient of the day and the nursing home decided to set the thermostat at 103 on a beautiful 65 degree day. It is a totally routine hospital discharge, nothing special about this call and we are ready to go 42 for the night, that is until my partner and I get to the nurse station to get signatures. Thats when I witnessed, probably, the greatest event of my young life. A patient rolls up to me precedes to drop her fake eye on to the ground, picks it up and looks at it for all of 2 seconds before I watch it vanish into her mouth. "But Brandon, that could have been a gum ball or a Everlasting Gobstopper" you say. My thoughts exactly. She spit it out and popped it back in laughing like a mad woman the entire time.
