I swear I am not usually such a germaphobe but I swear today I felt like I was walking into a petri dish. Maybe it was all the people reading and touching the same magazines that people have been reading and touching for weeks. I never thought before how much those stupid things were passers of plague.
Then I watched this woman at the pamphlet board. She carefully chose five or six brochures and folded the stack in two and started to vigorously fan herself. Then she stepped outside. Then came back in, PUT BACK the six pamphlets and picked six or seven more and repeated the process. I was the only one who noticed this and frankly I was freaked out. It wasn't even hot in the office. I am sure she is menopausal and was having a hot flash but holy crap it looked like nutty behaviour.
So many pregnant women were organizing themselves to be weighed and to pee into jars that I felt sympathetic labour pains just sitting in the waiting room. And this was all BEFORE I got into the examination room.
And I have to go back into that temple of doom to learn how to use my blood glucose monitor on Friday. Pray for me.
