The other day I was chatting with a few nursing students at the local medical college. I happened to ask them why they had decided to become nurses. Their answers were pretty much what one would expect - my mother was a nurse, I'd like to help people, etc. The last one to answer, a very attractive young woman, had a somewhat different response. She stared right at me and with a slight smile said "I've always liked the costume." I couldn't tell if she was kidding around or not. I rather liked this ambiguity. In fact it made my day.
