Anyway, so I was at the doctor’s yesterday, right? I ended up waiting about 3 hours to see him, so I was finished with my magazine well before I was called.
I was sitting there. A lady to my right was on her phone. There was one couple and a lady facing me. Suddenly, I couldn’t stand it. I had been stuck inside for 2 days and missed church on Sunday. I missed talking with friends!
I started talking to the people around me. “So, is it the flu?” They all shook their heads and laughed. Facebook is ablaze with reports of Friends and their kids who are down with the flu.
That started the talking. One lady has a canine and cat boarding business. One of her customers had to cancel their Christmas trip because they caught the flu. According to the lady, the family was going to board a couple of pooches, maybe a cat or two, and a bearded dragon.
From there we started talking about our pets. One lady has a farm with donkeys on it.
We had a good time talking and laughing, except I had to bow out of the talking because my throat was sore, but I enjoyed listening to their tales. A man on the other side of the room even joined in on the conversation.
That’s life in the south. Give us fifteen minutes, and we’re all friends!
Merry Christmas, Everyone, and maybe I’ll rally energy to blog more before Christmas Day! But better bronchitis than the flu, right?
