It's a phrase I never expected to say during my professional life, yet in some ways, metaphorical ways, I've been saying it all of my professional life.
We were discussing the strange smell. Was it a litter box? Was it the necropsy procedures going on in the Vet Tech lab?
I said, "At least it's not the plumbing this week."
For those who are curious, it was the biology specimens from the necropsy procedures. Biology specimens is a polite way of saying dead animal corpses.
