During a visit to her mother, who was in the hospital, Janet popped into the cafeteria for breakfast.
She set a piece of bread on the moving toaster rack and waited for it to return golden brown.
Instead, it got stuck all the way in the back.
When she couldn’t reach it, the woman in line next to her took control of the situation.
Seizing a pair of tongs, she reached in and deftly fished out the piece of toast.
“You must be an emergency-room worker,” Janet joked.
“No,” she said, “an obstetrician.”
