Feliz Cinco de Mayo

NewFNP had completely anticipated a light clinic day today in honor of Cinco de Mayo.  Not so, not so.  Seventy patients in all, 2.5 providers.  

Brisk, right?

On a busy day, why can't all the patients be like newFNP's precocious five-year old who is named after an exotic far-away land and who calls newFNP by her first name whenever she sees her.  

As newFNP turned the corner the other day and saw her in the hall, the little girl screamed "NewFNP!!" and ran towards her - wearing her pediatric paper gown - for a big hug.

"I'm so excited to see you, newFNP!" she exclaimed during the exam room.  NewFNP was intoxicated by her celebrity in the eyes of this little girl.  Granted, newFNP's encounters with this lovely genius are always fun, but newFNP generally only receives this warm a reception when she visits her 92-year old grandma!

Alas, not everyone is so enchanted with newFNP.

NewFNP is ready for a burrito, with salsa verde due to her disfiguring tomato allergy, and a Corona with lime.  Que rico sabor!  

Is 14 hours really enough time to re-group for another work day?
