 There's a thousand things that run through a technician's head daily. In the span of an 8-12 hour shift these are just some of the thoughts that go running wildly through our heads. 

Morning: 
1. Off to work to save lives and keep pets healthy. I love my job.
2. Is that a stray? Should I try to catch him? No, no just keep driving or you'll be late.
3. Oh boy, empty parking lot. It's going to be a slow day.
4. OMG, my co-worker is late...again, ugh.
5. 10 procedures on the board, here we go.
6. Did I put deodorant on?
7. What is that spot on my scrubs? I just got here.
8. Where is my pen? Ok, who the **** stole my pen???
9. OMG look at this mouth, it is a disaster. I can't wait to get that tartar off!
10. C'mon dog, can you breathe on your own so I can get this dental over with?
11. Why won't the stupid SP02 just read for once??
12. Next!
13. Really, what can't I place a catheter today? It must be these crappy veins.
14. Of course super tech would get it on her first try, ugh.
15. My feet hurt.
16. Pretty sure I need more coffee. 
17. This dog is super cute, if it needed a home I would totally take it!
