the voices: a friday funny
The nurse, after having hooked my abdomen to all kinds of monitors and my arms to IVs and blood pressure cuffs, told me to give her a buzz if I needed anything, and then she left the room. Well, I was uncomfortably in labor, so eventually I did need something.
I perused all the buttons, probably made my head lift and lower, and then finally pushed the button with the cartoon nurse head on it.
“Yes?” a voice said.
I looked at Seth and said “Whoa! Where is that voice coming from?” He didn’t know.
The nurse again said, “Yes, ma’am?!”
And I guess I had been so concentrated on everything attached to me that I had a momentary imagination that the nurse had actually wired me with a bug.
I lifted the neck of my ugly hospital gown and spoke down to the monitors: “Am I allowed to have some water?”
Suddenly aware of Seth’s perplexed face and of my own talking down my shirt like a secret agent, we burst out laughing.
For future reference, there is a speaker/receiver near that same nurse button on the bed. It’s not on your tummy.
