I was sitting in the waiting room at the doctor's office today, just reading a magazine and minding my own business, when I started hearing 2 fellas talking that were sitting near me. At first, their voices were just a low drone in the sea of other waiting room noises, but as time went on, their drone became more of an annoyance; these two gentlemen were bound and determined to solve ALL of the world's problems right there and then. By the time they got to conquering ObamaCare, I thought I was (a) going to have to wring their necks so I could get some peace and quiet, or (b) wring their necks so I cuold get some peace and quiet. Seriously. Why do some people talk just to talk? Couldn't they see that I was already nervous enough without their chitter chatter? Honestly....some people!
Finally, they called my name and hubs and I went to get my weight and blood pressure checked. Hubby commented on my elevated blood pressure and I informed him that it was high because of those 2 in the waiting room. The nurse said that my doctor was running behind, so if we wanted to go and get a drink or something, we had time to do that. Then, he (the nurse) kind of grinned and told me that I had permission to go and sit in the other waiting room so I didn't have to go and sit by those 2 guys again. YAY!
Soooo.....hubby and I went and got what, in hindsight, became my $3.50 cup of liquid Prozac....seriously....it was THAT GOOD!
Earl Grey Vanilla Creme tea with skim milk
It was heaven in a cup...smooth, creamy, warm....ahhhh....we got our drinks and went back to the Other Waiting Room and it was so nice....not crowded...not noisy....plenty of magazines to read....I was in heaven. I settled in and started reading. Life was okay for the moment.
THEN, I spotted Him. One half of the ObamaCare debate team was heading towards "My" waiting room. I gulped another sip of my
prozac tea and tried to hide behind my magazine. A few seconds went by and I peered over the cover. I saw that he was now with a blonde woman, and a very distraught-looking young woman. Hmmm...now my curiosity was piqued. I forgot all about my annyance with him and decided to figure out what was going on. Why was the girl upset? Who was the blonde with him? And, more importantly....where was the other fella??
Soooo....I waited and bided my time......
Oh, don't leave us hanging!!!!!ReplyDelete
Dropping by to say hello :-)
Patience isn't my thing. God even hit me over the head many times with Prov 3:5-6.
I like AMarie much better!
Hmm...I am wondering if you were made to feel bad in the end. I know that I have been there. You get annoyed and have unkind thoughts toward someone, and then you find out all of the facts and feel guilty for having such un-Christ-like thoughts.ReplyDelete
On the other hand, there could be some good comedy on its way at the conclusion of this story. Hehe.
Umm...A.Marie? I thought that I would stop by and let you know that it is tomorrow. I am just saying. LOL.ReplyDelete
