After our call for submissions of stories last month, we’ve had some wonderful stories submitted to us from some extremely talented and funny writers. Here’s the first in what will hopefully be a long and entertaining series, dealing with a mishap with scrub trousers!
Thank you so much to Sal, who sent in this fantastic story and who has won a free scrub top for her efforts.
The Drawback to Drawstrings
Tension was high in the theatre. The thankfully steady beat of the monitor seemed to hold the room together, interrupted only by the monotonous voice of the surgeon.
As I passed the requested instruments and sutures, I had my own subacute situation going on.
In my rush to scrub up, I had not tied my trousers properly.
The circulating nurse was my efficient but mischievous friend, so he was not going to be my saviour.
As the time passed, the tension in the room lifted, the steady drone of the surgeon's requests was replaced by banter about golf and planning the rest of the day's lists. But then my heart rate overtook the one on the monitor, as my own mini-drama took over in the theatre.
How great are those moments in theatre which lighten a busy day... but not when it includes my scrub trousers wallowing around my pink polka dot ankle socks!
