Let's be careful out there.

"I saw him, and he was basically a green man," Pohlman said, adding that after nurses cleaned off the patient, staffers determined he sustained a concussion and some broken bones.

"He had to make a choice between his costume and his member," Pohlman said. "Once it was put to him in that way ... he prioritized accordingly."

"We have sort of a green patrol going around and
mopping up green vomit," Lynch said. "Every year, we know we're going to get at least one or two green vomits."

That would be, Why I took the day off from the ER, Alex,

"People do stupid things on St. Patrick's Day,"

I'm shocked.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

When Mrs. wanderer was battling health issues some time ago, I had to take her to the ER on Halloween night one year. Let's just say the people-watching was fascinating.

Somehow, we doctors bear the brunt of green fever that strikes on this day. But trust me, when we dusted a newborn with green coloring before showing him to his mother, Mrs. Mendoza, she weren't laughin'.

"People do stupid things on St. Patrick's Day,"

No kidding? Gee, who could have seen any of this coming?

St. Patrick's Day or, as we say in AA: Amateur Night.

Bagpipes! Why does it always have to be bagpipes?

You know you may have had too much to drink if, before you go to bed, you try to take your pants off over your head.


does it make me a Bad Erin if I'm going braghless ?

The emergency room can be a festive place on St. Patrick's Day.

Yes, it can. So can bars...and many a fight got started when someone pinched someone. So here's a little advice.

Donate blood today. Alcohol counts a lot more when your body is a pint low

@ligirl - sure, as long as you don't scare the horses.

Leprechauns are the worst patients. Always saying things like "How do you like this pot of gold sweetie?" or "Want to play with my lucky charms?". Nasty little creatures.
I never had much happen in the ER on St. Patrick's Day but Halloween was always interesting. I have a great story about a vertically challenged guy who came in one Christmas Eve but I can't tell the story here.

ligirl, I suppose that depends on whether your cup runneth over.

Nah, it makes you Fun Erin. =^)
