You know you're a nurse if... • You believe every patient needs TLC: Thorazine, Lorazepam and Compazine. You would like to meet the inventor of the call light in a dark alley one night. Your sense of humor seems to get more "warped" each year. You know the phone numbers of every late night food delivery place in town by heart.
You can only tell time with a 24 hour clock. Almost everything can seem humorous ... eventually. When asked, "What color is the patient's diarrhea?", you show them your shoes.
