I love working nights. I’m a pediatrician at a county hospital, and it’s a great job. The work is interesting, and the daytime hassles seem distant (even hospital administrators sleep sometimes!). I love spending the day with my kids; then, just as their activities and their activity levels are winding down, I hand them off and off I go.
“Train whistle blowing, makes a sleepy noise, Underneath their blankets go all the girls and boys. Heading from the station, out along the bay, All bound for Morningtown, many miles away.”1
