Successfully combining nerdiness with school.
Whenever I go to see a patient at the hospital, I have to put on latex gloves so as to reduce the risk of spreading infection. It's not really to keep me from getting sick, because I'm (relatively) healthy, but more for the other immuno-suppressed patients. Most of the wards don't have large gloves readily available because most of the people running in and out of the rooms are 1/2 to 3/4 my size, so I always have to go and grab some from somewhere else. On the ENT ward, they have light blue rubber gloves. So, whenever my supervisor and I walk into someone's room, my brain automatically goes "Two by two, hands of blue." Every. Time.
