The good, the bad, & the monkey

As student physical therapists we are learning to screen cranial nerves. The CN VIII test involves whispering certain words into your patient’s ear and having them repeat it back you.

These are acceptable:

“Red, dog, Arizona”

“Blue, snow, Colorado”

This is not:

Purple, monkey, cowboy

PS: Monkey cowboys? Totally exists: ……….giddy-up…….. YOU. ARE. WELCOME.
