If you’re like me you’ve spent an inordinate amount of time waiting in doctors’ offices, whether for your annual physical, dental checkups, eye exams or something more serious. I pass the time by reading magazines or if I’m waiting in the little private room they put you in after your lobby wait—just to wait some more—I go through my stretches. What a waste of time otherwise. That’s why when possible I make early morning appointments because the later in the day the longer the waiting. I don’t see the humor in the situation like friend Paula’s husband Jerry. He said one time he waited about an hour or more before he finally saw the doctor. He said he asked his doctor, “Has anybody ever died out there waiting to see you?” His doctor said, “No, but they sure got a lot older.” I love living in Texas!
