Chapped lips?

Another foreign body story...sort of.

I was having another discussion with the ER nurses the other day when another foreign body in a rectum came in.  This time it was in the form of a shower head, this one also required a trip to outpatient surgery to remove it. This was interesting in itself, but the conversation that followed I found much more entertaining.

Nurse:  "Why would you stick a shower head up there?"

Me:  "I don't know, I've seen some very sexy shower heads."

Nurse:  "No, but seriously."

Me:  "Yeah, you'd think you'd start with something small, like a pen or maybe a chapstick."

*ER gets quiet*

Me:  "That was a very specific example, wasn't it?"

Nurse:  "Something you want to tell us, doctor?"

*I pull out a Burt's Bees from my pocket*

Me:  "Chapstick, anyone?"

Everyone declined.

Pocket is a euphemism huh?

Let's just call it "a place I like to keep things."
