I am so disappointed I could just about cry. No babies. No babies anywhere on the floor. Nobody in triage, nobody in labor. I’m on call, and by the look of it, there will be no babies tonight.

Ok, so it was nice not to be a black cloud (one who attracts tons of patients every call) on medicine. But right now, I hate it. I will appreciate it again in internship, no doubt. But why on earth do all the babies have to stay home on my night? Surely there’s some poor lady, at term, who would appreciate being delivered tonight?
