I was talking to someone outside of the children's hospital in Chicago when a taxi pulled up and out jumped my childhood pediatrician, Dr. Benjamin Emanuel, who proceeded to sprint into the hospital.
I was surprised to see that he had a ponytail.
I told the person I was talking to that the man who just ran into the hospital was 84 or 85 years old and was my pediatrician when I was a child and later my colleague when I had a job at the children's hospital where, on many occasions, Dr. Ben and I would have coffee together in the cafeteria and chat.
The person was amazed to see a man that age in such good shape.
Then I woke up.
