Something Different

on November 14, 2014

QUEEN FOR A DAY

Despite snorting out bursts of air, the smell of urine still sat in Nurse Claire Smart’s nostrils and her back muscles ached as she leaned over to clean her shoes.

Claire blamed the pain on Beulah Pittard, a patient she snidely called “Bubba” when referencing her to other nurses.  She had rushed to answer Beulah’s call light because the Tennessee born resident was prone to accidents and Claire had hoped today would be different. But, as she pulled the portly figure up from the mattress and swiveled her hips toward the bedside commode, a river of yellow rushed down Beulah’s leg and landed on the toes of Claire’s new white nursing shoes. The remainder splashed on the floor between them leaving a small puddle. Beulah’s only comment had been, “I pitter-pattered all over your pretty white shoes. Now doesn’t that just make perfect sense — Miss Pittard has pitter- pattered a pond of gold for all to see.”

Beulah had gasped before letting her bladder relax, so it would appear that this was truly an accident, but then she had raised one eyebrow and cocked her head when Claire finally gotten her positioned on the commode. Claire only glared in return and dropped a roll of toilet paper in Beulah’s outstretched hand. She was sure the octogenarian had done it on purpose. Claire was sure Beulah was getting her revenge.

To be continued tomorrow
