Stranded in the Doctor’s Office

Image result for images of frustration

I went to the doctor this morning for a routine checkup of my blood pressure; and waddya know, it’s way up! I think being forced to sit in the waiting room for an hour and a half had a lot to do with that result. It came back down a few minutes later.

Anyway, there I am, the morning just dribbling away from me, and on the doctor’s-office TV channel they’re telling you how calamitous it is for your health to do a lot of sitting! Well we’re only watching this because we’re in a doctor’s waiting room, aren’t we! I mean, do you see a trampoline anywhere handy? A set of fencing foils? A couple of unicycles? What else do they expect you to do in a freakin’ waiting room?

And then tomorrow there’s the veterinarian’s waiting room! And beyond that the dentist, the eye doctor, and whoever else wants a piece of me.

Honest, I really am trying to finish the book I’m working on…
