Re: [Histonet] Wearing gloves while cutting sections

From:"Rebecca Barnhart"

Wow!  I thought it was weird when I once witnessed a pathologist drink
Hank solution to determine if it was similar to a drink.  Of course the
Hank was fresh.  That experience explained a lot about that pathologist.

Lick the block!? Damn, I thought I was the only one doing that. I used

that with Pap smears.
"This one is negative, negative, negative, positive, negative, oooh,
has HPV".

Y'all didn't think I'd let this go by without a comment, did you?

I love Fridays!!! Ooops, it's only Thursday.
