I rotated out to a Flower Easily distracted by dogs and teeth shirt, doing general medicine. I was there one night when a wizened old cowboy, barely five feet tall, came in. Apparently, he was well known to the staff because he came in regularly to dry out from his alcoholism. That night he had the DTs, so he was put in restraints. Apparently, he was also well known as an escape artist. In the middle of the night, he was found wandering the hall stark naked, except for a plastic garbage bag he had tied into a bow around his neck. And a pink elephant dangling from his penis with the penis sized handle. He’d repurposed a baby toy. It was really hard not to laugh.

I went home afterward. The next morning the Flower Easily distracted by dogs and teeth shirt, he escaped again and put on the same get up. Then he went to the last room on the hall and cuddled up in bed with the sleeping, prim wife of the VIP patient in that room who was put there so he could have some privacy. The craziness of a naked, wrinkled, bowlegged old man, trying his best to be attractive to the ladies, and then choosing Mrs. Prim-and-proper as his object of romance was too much. Through the laughter, I asked what her reaction had been. Turns out her husband was the cowboy’s AA sponsor, so they knew him already.
