For a very long time now, I have been acquainted with 29050 and 29159. Occasionally, 20358 from Level 1 would light up on my screen, but it was only until very recently that 29033, 29427 and 20215 gave me no peace. In between, 29412, 20359, 29148 and 29777 would beckon remotely, but none was an outsider compared to 29977. Others like 29978 and 29999 were dialled so frequently that they were committed to memory rather early, by habit rather than by will.
For a very long time now, I have been 6250. But after tomorrow, when I hand in my pager, I will be 6250 no longer. 6250 in 2010 will be the me that was 12 months ago-- fresh-faced, naive, eager to take on the world. Whoever you are, may you continue the legacy of 6250 with stellar patience for calls that may be as important as fishing for a seahorse.Technorati Tags: medicine, doctor, internship, interns, career, work, hospital, pagers, wards, reflections, musings, humor
