Bored Blogging

View from my spot in the Shapiro Cardiovascular Center

It isn’t my habit to blog at 8:00 a.m. on a day off. It isn’t even my habit to be conscious at 8:00 a.m. on a day off. Unfortunately, I’ve been conscious, more or less, for the last 3 1/2 hours, when I was roused from a blissful sleep by the melodious vocal stylings of Allan Sherman singing “Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah,” which is never a good sign because that is the ring tone for my parents, who only call in the wee hours if it’s an emergency. (Thus, I answered the phone not with the customary “Hello,” but with a wary “What’s wrong?”) As it turned out, there was no real emergency, just a slightly ill father who decided it was best if he didn’t drive my mother into Boston for her surgical procedure.

And that’s how I ended up sitting in the family lounge of the cardiac building of a major Boston hospital, having already completed today’s Boston Globe crossword puzzle, Jumble Crossword, and Ken-Ken, preparing to walk downstairs to Au Bon Pain for a croissant and apple juice, followed by a nap on one of the couches in the family lounge.
