Me: I just got paged down to the trauma unit to check out a patient's hand because, and I quote, "the meaty part looks funky."
DP: They're not even trying anymore, are they?
I also tried asking what was so "funky" about it, but the answer involved some repetition of the phrase "the meaty part looks funky. I can't describe it. You have to come down and see it" so eventually I gave up and went down there.
To my (actually very trained) eye, there was nothing funky about the meaty part of the hand. The patient agreed with me.
For bonus points, anyone feel like guessing where "the meaty" part of the hand is?
