Some Things I Learn the Hard Way
For example, when the emerg psych nurses offer you Vicks VapoRub for your nose before entering the room to interview a suicidal homeless crack addict, don't put it directly in your nose. In fact, don't even put it under your nose. It's probably a much better idea to don a mask, coat the inside of the mask with the VapoRub and tell the patient you have a cold.
My eyes are still watering.
