Recently, I cleaned up the bedside table at the ambulance station. It was full of readers digest and various womens magazines from the past 20 years, mixed with a single epaullette, a lightglobe and a lone raisin.

And a book: "Picking up Girls", by Ira Alterman, published in 1982. Just right for some down time on a night shift.

Browsing the index, the chapter "How to get out of a girls house during a one night stand" caught my eye. Flip to page 55, there are some great words of wisdom:

"Someone, somewhere has left there car lights on. I'm going to find them and turn them off"
"I'm so happy I could run around the block. Here, let me show you!"
