Possible new profession?

So, something exciting happened at work today! I know, crazy huh! Anyway, I usually just end up answering phones (as usual) on clinic days, but today my boss asked if I wanted to take some stitches out on a patient...how cool is that? It was this really old, smelly man who kept winking at me, but he was oh so nice...ha ha! It was a little nerve wracking though because it was my first time and the stitches were on his face. Sorry if any of you are squeamish when it comes to stuff like this. Anyway, our PA Steve showed me how, it's really quite simple, you just cut one side, grab the knot, and it slides right out. I did the ones on his nose and eyebrow, I didn't really want to attempt the ones near his eye in case I got too shaky and poked his eye out or something. Oops...

Smelly, old men... hmm, I see why you want to change professions.

That's awesome!!! I bet it was kinda gross though. I remember when my stitches came out from my wisdom teeth surgery. It was gross. But I bet taking the stitches out kinda made you feel like a doctor for a moment. And that would be cool!

Fun Fun Kathleen, you are now officially a surgeon. Do you come with a surgeon general's warning?
