While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his
certificate, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered that a tall, handsome boy
with the same name had been in my high school class some 40 years ago. Upon seeing him,
however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was too old to have been my classmate. After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school.
