"Anywhere But Here"
I caught a cold. Workplace hazard. I wash my hands like crazy,
but it doesn't help when a viral-laden pedi coughs in your face
when you're doing the throat exam or looking in their ears.
I tell their parents to keep them home, rest, lots of fluids,
follow up with their pediatrician in a couple of days if they're
not getting better...
And, yet, I can't call in sick and follow my own advice.
I have to go to work.
After all, those Norco scripts aren't going to write themselves...
