Hmmmm, perhaps I should explain.  I spent the entire day in mandatory Emergency First Aid, CPR and Automated Defibrillator Training.  So I spent a great deal of the day on the floor, pretending to have various injuries while several of my co-workers groped me searching for broken bones.  (Or that's what they said they were doing)  LOL  So depending on who was your partner, it was an interesting way to spend the day!!

And during the Defibrillator part of the training we spent alot of time pretending we were in an episode of Greys Anatomy and yelling "Clear" before pushing the shock button. 

We learned a lot and we laughed a lot.  Luckily the trainer had a great sense of humor too so between her attitude and our crazy staff the day went quickly.


  1. Kim,
    Your job sounds as wacky as mine! I spent the day helping people build the slowest marble raceway they can, even though they actually like making the marble go faster! Very cute post! It gave me a much needed chuckle!
    Take care,

  2. Sounds like an interesting day. Has the repair guy been there yet? Maybe he needs a jolt from the paddles.

  3. If I were to get Groped I would need the Defib...
    How can I get all of my Text the same, like yours?

  4. Kim, this is great therapy for your frustrations this week. I'm glad that you were having fun. Hope that thye rest your week goes well. JB

  5. Hey who needs a massage with all that groping going on!! LOL!
    Glad your day went fast!
    Hope your repair guy made an appearance too!

  6. If I was being groped by a bunch of people I am sure I would get the giggles.

  7. Wow, that is a funny day. I like your word too. Grope, it just sounds creepy. You sound better today I am glad. I read Accu Weather and Joe Bastardi said that he thinks winters back is broken. So we will see. You know what it means if I have a early spring? I will have summer that lasts from March to November. By the time you have flowers we will be in 100 degree weather, so it all evens out.

  8. Hmmmmm. I wasn't sure what I was going to find over here. I knew without a doubt it would be entertaining and funny. I am glad you had a fun day at work! I am curious about Mr. No Show Handyman too!

  9. Maybe the handyman got groped to the point where he couldn't show! Sounds like a fun day. AND YOU GOT PAID FOR BEING GROPPED - WOW WHAT A JOB!!!

  10. Was McDreamy there because there would be some groping going on if he was.

  11. It's good to have fun while learning something meaningful!!

  12. It always helps to have fun when you have to learn something new! sandie

  13. I grope for the answer to "Why don't I live someplace tropical?" during this relentless winter which is making me loopy. I wish I would have obliterated my bank account to go someplace beachy but I decided to be sensible. . . . sigh. . . . . whatever.
