Pick-up line.

Words spoken to me by a Grady elder this week:

"Girrrrrrl, you betta be glad you ain't closer to MY age! Shooot. If I was jest a few years younger I'd be chasing you like a Monday after the weekend!"


Well.

It's good to know that I've still got it. 

And can I please say that there was more than "just a few" years between us?
And that his "old lady" was sitting RIGHT beside him?

Mmmm hmmm.

Sigh. I love this place.

Happy Thursday. First day of wards. . . and away we go!

  1. Oh how wonderful!! I love your Grady elder stories. They remind me of back when I volunteered at a major cancer center in Texas...many of the patients I visited with were older and real characters in the absolute best possible way. One of them was from Ohio, a member of a family that owned a pewter factory, and he gave me a pewter snowflake ornament as a keepsake. It goes at the top of my tree every year and I think of him and smile every time I see it!

  3. He he he - sometimes your Grady elders tie with the junior Mannings in terms of adorableness :)

    Happy Thursday!

  6. Hey Dr. Manning. I noticed you didn't post on Friday. Not like you. Hope everything is okay.

    1. How sweet of you, Lisa! I just picked up a ward service at Grady on Thursday so just getting my bearings straight with my patients. Stay tuned. . . it's a busy service so it's giving me lots to reflect upon! Hugs to you!

  7. Ummm...Mark, if he was rich, he'd either be going to Emory or Emory Mid-town...not likely Grady. I hear that Emory has suite rooms for their pampered clientele...not that I'd know.
