i'm in the hospital

my coworker, the doctor, walked fast past my office. he was obviously in a rush.
the doctor: "i'll call you when i get back to my office and we'll get on the call."
me: "where are you going?"
the doctor (already halfway down the hall): "the hospital."
me (giggling): "are you okay?"
the doctor (hollering back through the double doors): "yes."

and i giggled some more. any other office that would have been of your coworkers running down the hall, yelling behind them that they were going to the hospital? what? whoa! do you need a ride? do you need me to call anyone? do you need me to put an appendage in a ziploc baggie with ice?

but no. when your office is located in what used to be the birthing wing of the hospital and your office has a negative scope and a sink and a paper towel dispenser and used to be a perinatal room.... asking someone if they're okay when they say they're going to the hospital....

well, that's just funny.
