chicken shit

So, I talk to a lot of the nurses on the floors. I know the names of at least half a dozen nurses in every unit, and probably more than that in the ICU's. I am often the resident that nurses come to, because they know that I listen.

And so, I'm never really surprised when nurses talk to me about their lives, because... well... I listen. And I don't make much of it, until recently. One of the nurses I know, I think she was flirting with me.

I say "think" because honestly, it's been that long since anyone has flirted with me. It's not like I'd know it if I saw it, and really, I don't want to read too much into it. But it certainly seemed like it.

Now, there was all that big talk about taking advantage of opportunities and growing personally and socially, but I completely let it hang. And I realize that it's because I'm chicken shit. And what can I say? I have no defense. It's who I am, and that's all I can say.

If she was flirting with you and she really liked you, then this might happen again. You could take advantage of that, unless of course, you don't like her that way.


Hah, what am I saying? It's not like I'd recognize this if this happened to me. I'm chicken shit too.

No nurses. No. Bad Ifinding. Bad. Flirting is OK. But remember it's just batting practice--like karaoke before a big speech.
