Holiday Surgery Is Also Best Avoided 

My own birthday is very close to Martin Luther King day, so it's unlikely I'll ever have my own national holiday.

If you can avoid having surgery on your surgeon’s birthday, you should.

TV surgeon Dr. Turk Turkleton, of the sitcom “Scrubs”, definitely had the right idea.

Turk: It could keep me from becoming the youngest chief of surgery in history, which could keep me from curing paralysis, which could keep me from having my birthday be a national holiday! And everyone knows I hate to work on my birthday!
