Animal Nurse

Tad chewed the leg of my chair and got a splinter of wood stuck in his stomach.

At least that’s what they said at the emergency animal hospital!

He was throwing up and Chloe said I should take him to the vet. The vet did an x-ray and said there was definitely something in there. So onto the pet hospital where they did an ultrasound and an endoscopy. (All in, getting Tad healthy again cost $4,200.)

Chloe went with me to the hospital and the nurse who was on Tad’s case came and sat down with us to explain the procedure. This woman was amazing. She was pretty, but not gorgeous. But that wasn’t what was so attractive about her. She had the most amazing, outgoing personality. She was playing with Tad’s hair while she talked to us and she was just so friendly and I don’t know, cool. It was weird because Chloe was right there with me as I was going gaga for this nurse. Not to mention the fact that I was supposed to be focused on Tad, not swooning for this nurse.

Anyway, nothing happened, obviously. Would have been a bit uncool to ask her out in front of Chloe. But I am constantly amazed at how important personality is in making a person attractive.

    Glad Tad’s OK … sorry it cost so much!

    Considering perception is reality, do you think Chloe picked up on your quivering-jello state? It was obvious to you that you would’ve been more than willing to lie down in loving servitude to the Angel of Doggie Mercy, but unless you were at a loss for words or your mouth was hanging open or you were all giggly and silly around her, neither of the women may have noticed.

    Not that it really matters, but it’s just interesting to think about. For instance, it’s comfort with/around strangers that’s the point (or one of the points) of your effort, so perhaps you’re starting to throw-off the same kind of magnetism (albeit in smaller doses, perhaps) that sucked you into the WonderNurse.

    Ever read Rohl Dahl as a kid (or adult?) ? About personality affecting attractiveness:

    “If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

    – Roald Dahl, The Twits
