Doesn’t everyone let their kids play with syringes?

Back in the day when I actually had to work for a living, we’d pass the boring times in the ER (yes, there really are boring times in the ER but I suppose everything is relative) by filling Toomey syringes with KY jelly and squirting the crap out of each other.   (Those of you who know me and my maturity level well will not be surprised.)

Not wanting to pay for a gazillion dollars’ worth of KY, nor explain its many uses to the kids, I sent them out with Toomeys and a bucket of water.  Clean up was much easier than it used to be in the ER!

    What a cool idea for water-guns!

      They sure last a lot longer than those silly little squirt guns.

      Have you heard anything on the next BeeSpeakSTL? I thought they were going to have on in June or July but haven’t seen any news on it.

    leave it to you to come up with such crazy fun for the kids. Lemme know if you ever need more of those – I toss them regularly in the job.

    A friend did that with her kids and the smaller diabetic size syringes. Just took off the needle and let the water fly.
