David treats a wise child

During a recent shift at a pediatric urgent care center, a young boy came in with a scald burn to his arm. As I debrided his wound, we discussed some of the pressing issues of youth, including how awesome dinosaurs are and whether or not mall Santas are real (consensus: of course they are). All of 5 years old, he was a total fighter and didn't complain one bit throughout the procedure. 

After a heated debate about how fast Spot runs - we both said some things we didn't mean - the following exchange occurred:

-----

David: This must've been pretty scary, but you've been doing great.

Kid: Hey, I'm not scared of anything. 

David: Nothing? Really (unsure whether or not to entrust him with my fear of clowns)? That's pretty impressive.

Kid: Nope, nothing...

        ...except bush babies.

-----

Mildly confused about what he was taking about, I allowed the conversation to shift, and soon he was all fixed up and on his way home. Later, a quick Google search provided the images that will give me night terrors for the rest of my natural life.


Wise choice, kid...

He's like a miniature buddha

Except instead of promoting wisdom and enlightenment, he terrorizes my mind.

Go back to the bushes whence you came, babies.

Clowns are damn scary and your fear of them could be used against you. Never share.

I had a college roommate who used to tell me I look like a bush baby...

Now you'll spend the rest of your night wondering what I look like.

Hahaha, forgive me for saying, but I find bushbabies sooooo cute! (they look alot like my cats actually!) :-)

Nice blog, by the way!

Cute? They look like they have been indulging in drugs better left alone.
They look maniacal!
