I explained all this to Clinical Research. (the malfunction - not swearing in front of my 7 year old) ok they said that's two shots wasted.
Well I wouldn't go that far I said. They weren't wasted, they were just...not....successful.
That is what we'd call wasted said Clinical Research. You have wasted them
Wasted sounds intentional I said This was more a case of premature injection. It can happen to anyone.
New Nurse was unsympathetic. Wasted she wrote in her report.
And so it was. I guess it's all a case of semantics. Once upon a time I used to buy drugs and then take them to get wasted. Now I'm given drugs and when I fail to take them, they're wasted.
