Being a bonafide “Pinkneck” which is defined as a female redneck, I have picked up a few medical terms you might want to review in case you need to call a doctor or go to the hospital.
Here are commonly used terms heard in Alabama and Arkansas medical facilities. Here in Mississippi the doctors are way more sophisticated.
You might want to clip this list to keep in your jeans pocket in case you find yourself in the emergency room:
Bacteria – back door to the cafeteria
Barium – what they do when patients die
Benign – what you be after you be eight
Cat scan – all out search for kitty
Coma – a punctuation mark
Dilate – to live long
Enema – not a friend
Fibula – a small lie
Impotent – distinguished or well known
Labor pain – getting hurt at work
Nitrates – Rates of pay for the night crew
Outpatient – a patient who has fainted
Recovery Room – a place to do upholstery
Seizure – an eyetalian emperor
Terminal illness – getting sixk at the airport
Urine –Opposite of you’re out.
Bare – an alcoholic beverage made from hops and barley. “Take two bares and go to bed and you’ll feel better in the morning.”
