Herein lies truth. I'm pretty sure I could eat lunch next to a decomposing corpse. Nurses forget that our nonmedical friends do not share this trait and that discussion of THE WORST I&D SMELL EVER or the really horrific blast injury from this other year is not necessarily welcomed at dinner. Or ever. This was best exemplified at one of my family's dinners for some holiday or other when someone said, "So do you have any good ER stories?" My dad said, "Don't ask! For God's sake, don't ask!"
