My deep thought for today, since I accidentally published the post I was going post today yesterday (damn you, WordPress interface, for confusing me!), is that Nurses Week will provide ample opportunity for Teddy Bear Alerts* — you know, the writing about nurses that is sweet and syrupy, or that encourages nurses to behave like saccharine doormats; you think of teddy bears, dogs wearing sailor uniforms, or little red-headed girls in pinafore dresses, and then you throw up in your mouth, just a little?
I will keep my eyes peeled for potential nominees to the first (coveted) Annual Teddy Bear Award for Excellance in Demeaning, Degrading, Soapy/Saccharine or Sterotypical writing for or about nurses.
It’s my public service to you.
