You are sitting at your favorite cafe, sipping on an intricate Italian roast and idly flipping through a magazine.
"Nothing related to medicine today", you remind yourself, skipping past a glossy article on bariatric surgery. It's your day off and you don't want to see so much as a ball of cotton.
Right on cue, your phone rings. It's your colleague, Patrice.
"Hi! Can you please cover for me today? I have a huge family emergency and I really have to go. I'll owe you one, thanks!". She sounds frantic, and hangs up before you can utter a word.
With a sigh, you put down the periodical and trudge to the car. "So much for 'nothing related to medicine today'", you mutter to yourself.
