I have received permission to recount the following anecdote, which was told to me by someone who shall remain anonymous.
She had just had her first baby and was at a gynecological appointment. Just as the doctor was about to examine her,
she heard him say, "Oh no! . . . This is not good! . . . Oh my goodness!"
Naturally, she became quite concerned.
She asked what was wrong.
He told her that his wife, who was also a doctor, had left the examination light on overnight. It turned out that the heat from the lamp had melted the plastic drawer of the examination table!
