63: I love slutty nurses.

But I also love slutty secretaries, realtors, QT clerks, dental hygenists, grocery baggers and car wash attendants.

Are you detecting a theme here?

"The D" said...

63. I must know more about these slutty nurses! STAT!

Arigato! for the shout out! I can speak Japanees but I can't type it.

Of course after doing the list I thought of about 75 more.

SmedRock said...

Slutty nurses serve a purpose. Patient morale. Atleast from what I am told...

Heather said...

Guys...the slutty nurses only sleep with med students, residents, and doctors.


"The D" said...

I have a t-shirt that sayes "trust me I'm a doctor" does that count?

Heather said...

Get enough liquor in them, they might believe anything. After all, they are known for being easy...not smart.

emawkc said...

"16. I have an American Eskimo named Sam."

Is it still legal to own American Eskimos?

Heather said...

Not if you pay them in jerky treats.

jared said...

1. My name is Heather, but my friends call me Headhurt, Head, or H-train.

I think after reading #78 everyone should start calling you Atlantis.

Heather said...

Don't be silly, Hair. Atlantis is my stripper name.

emawkc said...

Also, I forgot to tell you that after reading your list, I have a serious blog crush on you.

Just sayin'

SmedRock said...

After her last response in the comments I have serious blog crush on her! A stripper with virtue. Perfect!

Xavier Onassis said...

"1. My name is Heather, but my friends call me Headhurt, Head, or H-train."

"Atlantis is my stripper name."

There is so much material here....

But I want to get back to those slutty nurses!! I need details!

I'm 51 years old, packing a few extra pounds, recently quit smoking after about three decades of puffing like a chimney. I sit in front of a computer all day ignoring emails and not answering the phone or returning messages.

I have steak cooked rare, smothered in bacon and onions, with a big pile of greasy fries and a plateful of buttery biscuits on the side for EVERY MEAL and I wash it all down with a bottle of small batch bourbon.

There is no doubt whatsoever that I will wind up in a hospital sooner rather than later. I need to know where these slutty nurses work so I can make well informed "urgent care" choices.

I'm disappointed and concerned that my health care provider does not have a "find a slutty nurse near you" prompt on their phone tree.

I must make myself a note to register a complaint!

I have to go now. It's "cheeseburger and lethargy" night at the Onassis Mansion.
