Confusing Name

The famous Olympic skier Picabo (pronounced Peek-A-boo) Street is not just an athlete, she is a nurse. She currently works at the Intensive Care Unit of a large metropolitan hospital.

She is not permitted to answer the telephone, however. It simply caused too much confusion when she would answer the phone and say, “Picabo, ICU.”

Actually, Picabo’s not a nurse, but she can take the joke. Since she was a little kid, she’s been teased about her name. Her parents got it from a town in Idaho near where she grew up. The town takes its name from a Native American word meaning “shining waters.”.
