Butt sweat

Every now and then there is something that happens that no matter how hard you try to keep your composure, its all over. Today was one of those times. I was doing a history on an older patient who was being admitted. His family member was trying to recall all his medical problems when one of the things that was going on was "something that sounded like butt sweat". I couldnt figure it out until at last it made sense. The patient was having problems eating. Then I got it "AS-piration!"

Ha ha! That's FUNNY! :)

So ..then ...DID you laugh in front of them or after you got out of the room? :)

Sometimes I think the image of someone TRYING to suppress laughter is funnier than the event itself ..sometimes. And the image of it building so much that they just can't contain it and bust out laughing. I appreciated the laugh Throckmorton. Thanks for sharing.
