Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is almost here. Among many other things, it's the anniversary of my first visit to the University of Chicago Hospitals emergency room. After that incident, I visited twice more to bring hurt friends. On my third time there, I made the idle comment (lcohen and rhobike may recall this) that I really needed to expunge the phrase "my annual visit to the U of C emergency room" from my vocabulary.
Everybody keep your fingers crossed. If I can make it through Monday without having to take someone to the ER, I will have broken the chain! Everyone stay safe this weekend.
