Look For A Pattern: Life is full of(to quote a famous person)'bumps in the road.'But you keep driving and find out if there's more bumps down the road.Or,you see a cloud in the sky. Is it gonna rain?You gotta see if more clouds collect(or check the weather report--would that there were a clotting report).So it may happen once or twice then no more.But if it repeats and turns into a consistent pattern, it's doc time
