Night Nurse

My lady fare was off to work to start her long night shift. “Will you have a busy night” I asked, “well depends how many patients we have admitted today, she said. Then she added “I don’t think we have any in intensive care, so it won’t be too bad.” As we got closer to the Barrow town centre street she had asked to be dropped off at, I began to wonder why she was going into town and not to the hospital. “Are you not starting until later?” I asked being the curious type that I am. “No I’m starting now” she said. It wasn’t until we stopped outside a local veterinary clinic that the penny finally dropped. But when you think about it I guess that animal patients need twenty four care whilst in hospital, just like us eh!
