My Own Private Gutter

And so I'm at work today looking over a medical report to scan into our system, and the following dictation catches my eye: "... submandibular gland with pussy drainage". My first reaction was, "...... Damn! Here's a doctor who doesn't care about being politically correct... And how is that even relevant to the jaw anyway?!"

But then it suddenly dawned on me that in this case, "pussy" was actually referring to something being full of pus.

The moral here: I suppose it's true what my friends often say... my mind is always in the gutter.
