Sick Day

At the pediatrician's office with a sick nine-year old. The waiting room is crowded and we have been here over an hour and, to quote the film Repo Man, "the lights are growing dim...".

A little girl is shrilly playing despite repeated requests from her father to "lower your voice". Every so often she calls out "Fire in the Hole!" much to my amusement.

After two hours waiting, we learn that the nine-year old has Strep throat.
