A Vision in Slime

No doubt about it: being a vet attracts attention.  For the newly initiated you might assume it has something to do with the truck.  Or the coveralls/scrubs.  Or people reliving their childhood dream of being a vet and being jealous that you actually are one.  And those reason are just adorable.  Feel free to keep thinking them, but stop reading now. 

Here are some examples of why people at the gas station are actually staring at you.
  • Shirt on inside out or backwards (Because you ran out the door at 5 a.m.)
  • Ripped clothing (Hey, at least you didn't get hurt!)
  • Stink bug crawling on your shoulder (Sneaky bastards...)
  • Large mystery bruise (That you probably don't even know is there yet.)
  • Jeans soaked with various dried bodily fluids (Don't worry, most of those stains wash out.)
  • Trying to locate the weird smell (It's you - own it!)
  • Placenta stuck to your boot (You'll figure that one out when it migrates down to the sole and makes you fall.)
  • Alpaca or llama spit on the back of your neck (Looks like dried grass... but with the smell.)
  • Blood spatter on your face (Probably from dehorning calves.)
  • Dingle-berry in part of your ponytail (Someone's been doing a herd check!)
  • Manure in your ear (Palpating... calvings... just being awake and on a farm...)
