My doctor’s name is Louisa Hadron. Here is an extract from one of our recent conversations in her surgery.

Me: Just out of interest, do you know there’s a sub-atomic particle named after you?
Dr Louisa Hadron: What are you talking about?
Me: The hadron. They come in two sizes apparently.
L H: What?
Me:  Well, there’s something called a Large-Hadron collider, so I would assume there must be small hadrons as well. It’s in Switzerland. The collider thing.
L H: (Just looks puzzled.)
Me: Actually it runs from Switzerland across into France. Illegal immigrants use it on weekends to cross the border. They climb through the tube thingy.
L H: Look, do you want me to have a look at that rash or what?
