Funny kid story du jour

I was starting an IV on a child, as you might surmise from the title of the post. One thing I often say to people is "let your arm go loose like a spaghetti noodle" while I'm palpating for veins.

This child kept her arm straight and stiff. I wiggled her hand and said, "No, no, like a spaghetti noodle!"

She said, "I AM holding it like a spaghetti noodle."

Her mother saw the issue and said, "Hold it like a spaghetti noodle AFTER it's cooked."

Point taken.
