A Very Savvy Nurses Aide

Two nurses and a doctor try to coax me into a wheelchair. I sit firmly, hard, arms crossed, not doing it no matter what. A nurse's aide comes in. She says "Therapy dog is down at X-ray today." I jump into that wheelchair like the bed was on fire, and away we go. No dog in sight, but a very savvy nurse's aide.

Thank you, Jan. I wrote that in honor of all the LPNs everywhere and the CNAs too.
