  • Tuck them safely inside 'cause the doors aren't too wide And smashed hands are quite cumbersome

  • So hospital doors never close and the people who provide care to the sick remain at or near the bedside

  • That was back in the time when nurses wore white uniforms and caps and the surgery patients weren't wheeled out the front door of the hospital to go home before the anesthesia wore off

  • I could see the elevator door standing open in the distance and thought to myself, "What a lucky break." Jan and I were walking side by side with our heads turned toward each other, still talking, as we continued down the basement hallway

  • Then the elevator door began to close

  • By this time Jan and I were about 20 or 30 feet from the elevator and we both started running so we could press the "Up" button in time to make the door open again

  • And if you pushed the "Up" button quickly enough, the door would open again and you could get in

  • As the elevator door slid open, we couldn't see anyone inside
