Only in New York

I was on my way to visit a parishioner in the hospital this afternoon, and as I approached the building, an Einstein Hospital van, used to transport staff from one of the scattered buildings on the campus (and across the Bronx) to another, pulled up. The doors slid open and two doctors in white coats stepped out. Both had intent, stern, New York doctor expressions, and hurried intently on their different ways. The first was carrying one of those "Human Organ" transport cases by the handle. The other cradled, between his vertically positioned hands, a clear plastic deli container with a large slice of cheesecake.

Only in New York.

Wonder if the contents of the doctors packages came from the same location?

I love it! I think there's a sermon in here somewhere.

Or as they say everywhere else in the US; New York Cheesecake.

Okay... but

Suppose the cheesecake was being brought to a patient whose dying wish was for one more slice of cheesecake.

So maybe that's not very likely, but wouldn't it be good if it was true.

Said the Chief of Surgery to the Nervous Resident: "I need a cheesecake infusion, STAT!"
