As I sat in the laboratory waiting area of my doctor’s office awaiting some test results, I was perusing my copy of The Cynic’s Dictionary and ran across an entry that seemed most apropos for the day . . .
“A building that ought to have the recovery room adjoining the cashier’s office.” (Francis Walsh)
I’ve always been fortunate to have had fairly good medical insurance coverage, so this has not been my personal experience. I have always maintained a very healthy lifestyle and have not required a hospital stay (at least not yet), but I liked this humorous quotation nonetheless.
