Writing Challenge Day 12: 2 words/phrases that make you laugh

The first time I saw this, I promptly went into silent laugh mode. As a cat lover, with one feline who could have written this meme, it hit close to home. I love it. It brings a smile to my face every time.


The other, is compliments of our medical system. We recently switched here in America to ICD-10 (Europe had it since the 1990’s….but I digress….). This is medical speak for diagnosis codes – for not only insurance purposes, but to describe one’s condition in the most detail possible. It’s uniform so it will translate well between health care workers. They have a code. For.  Everything. And I couldn’t stop laughing at these – here are a few of my favorite ones. They are all real, I promise!

W22.02XA:  Walked into lamppost, initial encounter
V97.33:  Sucked into jet engine
