Timing

“Dr. Bates, your patient’s EPT is positive.”

“Let the OR know, I’ll go tell Meg.”

Knocking softly, I enter. “Meg, we’ll have to reschedule your surgery. Your EPT is positive.”

“Oh.” Meg exhales. Tears run down a cheek as she smiles, “We wanted another one.”

That product was the first step towards eliminating my ability to ever wear monogrammed anything. The movie was the last straw.

It's true. My initials are EPT.
