Reflection on a Wednesday: Grady Verbatim

There is NOTHING more awesome than the Grady elders. You cannot predict what they'll say or do next no matter how hard you try. Case in point--here is something I heard today on rounds with my team:

Me: "I like your fancy eyelashes!" (Patient was wearing these gnarly glue-on strip lashes.)

Grady elder: "Baby, you lookin' at the world's oldest hoochie-mama!"

Me: "W--ow."

100% true, 0% exaggeration.

I love this job.


  1. HAHA.

    I have a (Cantonese) great-aunt who just turned 90, and she has a boyfriend (!!) in his 70s--they go dancing together. Super cute. The last time I saw her I said, "Auntie Winnie, I hear you have a new boyfriend!" and she said, "Yeah! I'm a COUGAR!"

    I would NEVER have predicted that one. I can't believe she even knows what it means! We were all dying laughing.

  2. Hilarious!!! Auntie Winnie sounds like my kind of gal! That's AWESOME!
