Wang Your Eyes, Man

One of the peculiarities about working nights, for me at least, is the slightly heady period as they finish. Things always seem a little disconnected. Personally, I find my humour threshold drops off. Odd things occur to us, and odd things strike me as funny.

Recently, for example, one of my SHOs used the expression 'wang-eyed'. This was as an alternative to 'cock-eyed'; I can't remember how it came about, or in fact who we were talking about; me? you? a patient?

Either way, I found the expression hilarious. It became the expression of the moment, and the oncoming tea were bemused to come on to find the night guys giggling, slightly hysterically about eyes being wanged.

It was funnier than it sounds.
