fire drill

Alfred is a cute 14 year old boy. He is leaving today. He is an orthopedic patient who has been on the ward for at least a month. Yesterday, there was a fire drill.

Last night, Alfred was my patient. Sitting on his bed he recounted the days events in his "captian's voice"

"This is a drill, this is a drill, this is a drill. Would all emergency teams please report to thier stations."

This was his third fire drill and he said he could be the "assistant captian." We told him he had been here to long :)
