EXTRACT: Six o'clock in the ante meridian and I'm out and about of my own free will! No emergency, no distraught people, no imminent death, no blood, no pain, no need for bedside manner! Need only smile! (Ann smiles and waves at Chris.) There's my dearly beloved waiting to walk through the metal detector. All packed off and pink with anticipation over five days of chinwag and chitchat! Flying south to present a tax deductable paper on terribly meaningful things!
