Today brought some unexpected twists and turns. At lunch, I realized that my backache was partly the result of a bladder infection. I tried to reach my doctor, but was put on hold every time I tried all afternoon. (That was an expected happening.) So, I asked my co-workers where the nearest walk-in clinic was. Someone finally directed me to one about a mile away. I was in and out within a half hour. I think that was the fastest I was ever in and out of a doctor's office. I stopped at the nearest location of the drug store chain that I usually get my prescriptions at. I got all the way home to find out that I was shorted two pills. I really don't want to go all the way back there today - they will let me pick them up on Monday. I also found out from my daughter that she goes to the clinic right next to my work. It got me thinking: How many people really pay attention to what is around them when they go to and from work?
