The weather is getting warmer, the sun is getting brighter, and graduation season is upon us. Before graduates don their caps and gowns, however, they generally all pass through some sort of Spring Concert/Class Day/Senior Week bacchanalia that inevitably leads a handful to pass through the ambulance bay doors.

The results typically range from the slightly amusing to the tragically trashy and the nearly intubated.

Over the weekend, however, amid the stream of 20-somethings pouring into the ED, a very inebriated septagenarian rolled in shouting obscenities.

Observed the triage RN: "Gives a whole new meaning to Senior Week."
