Most days we have "theme days" in the clinic. We'll have a whole run of chest pain or a couple of guys with erectile dysfunction, or a bunch of kids with colds or a slew of nervous moms. Its a funny phenomenon seen in almost every clinic setting. Even when I was a massage therapist there would be weeks that 10 out of 30 clients would have similar problems.

Cold's and flu's in the fall don't count as part of a theme day. Regular procedures, like PAP smears don't count either. Common maladies have to be out of season. Generally the problem needs to be a little bit of a head scratcher. And there has to be more than one, but more than two is better.

Today, so far, is not a theme day. But it is Friday and it is half over.

Fearest not:
She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

Proverbs 31: 9b
