This is the guy who arrived at the clinic at the same time we did. In an orderly world, he should have been on the table;Ellis had already been called. But the minutes ticked as he waited to hear his name. Then a nurse came into the lounge to say, "Dr. Soandso had just arrived. He had an emergency. We'll be calling his patients in the order as scheduled. He's very sorry. " This guy grabbed his head of unwashed, tangled locks and moaned loudly as he bent low between his legs with despair. He had lived through hell the night before, arrived on time, had a belly ache from his ordeal, was starving to death, and his doctor was late coming to work. His predicament caught my sympathies and attention. His profile of angst occupied me till I was called to retrieve my honey.
