Non-Euclidean Emergency Medicine Show

This is a straightforward, if non-Euclidean, scene I cut from my fourth draft of Alpha Max. I thought it was fun, but it didn’t move the plot along much and I was able to cut it down to a couple of sentences in the sixth (and final) draft. You don’t need to know much, except that an alien spaceship has appeared over the skies of Landon, Ontario, and that the protagonist, Max Tundra, has broken his big toe and is in the hospital getting it checked out.
