    You know you're a nurse when....

    ...you think your husband is your patient in the middle of the night...

    sometime around 2:30am:

    Me: unintelligible mumbling

    Ryan (groggy): "What'd you say?"

    Me: "What's your pain level?"

    Ryan (a little confused and half asleep): "Well, I'm pretty sure it's a zero...[long pause]..I don't think you need to be working while you are sleeping."
    I am required to ask my patients a zillion times a day to rate their pain "on a scale from 1 to 10...ten being the worst pain you could ever imagine..."

    So, what's your pain level?
