It was unprovoked and for no apparent reason. Nageeshak ran into a black bear in Pennsylvania. No one was hurt, except for the bear. When Mike Kim was still doing his residency, his girlfriend allowed him to practice inserting an IV on her. Ola said, “That’s love.”

Nick was a lightning bolt for Halloween. Abby clipped an entire yard of grass with scissors. She did it to impress a boy.
