Yup, someone really did bring in their child because he was smelly. The dog and the booger are both fictional scenarios made up by ER BFF and I respectively that we are convinced WILL happen one of these days. We're just waiting for it.
The inevitable question I'm getting whenever I tell real world friends this story is "was the kid really that smelly?" I'm afraid I can't even answer that question. He was in a pod next to a patient with a GI bleed, all you could really smell in that whole part of the ER that night was melena and sorrow. So, I guess not smelly enough to overpower the scent of GI bleed poo, then. Thanks for playing.
