So my job does not entail anything below the stomach; yet, I was pulled into a room the other day because I speak a very limited number of Spanish words. Needless to say, my client was put on hold as I ran to do my duty and assist the physician.
The patient is lying on his back and the doctor begins firing a million questions for me to translate so we can obtain his medical history.
The patient, growing uneasy, responds cautiously.
The doctor then snaps on a latex glove, searches out his KY Jelly, and then asks me to tell the patient he is going to roll him on his side and check for a rectal bleed.
OMG! How do I say that?!!! [deep breath]
"El va a poner un dedo en su nalgas."
Patient's eyes bulge. Finger in. Finger out.
"Es bueno... porque no hay sangre?"[I think]
So because of this wonderful inopportune time that I was provided to demonstrate my skills I have decided to try and learn Spanish. I SOOO did not sign up for this!
