A waiting room is not my favorite place to be. I'm going to have my fill of one before long - what with physical therapy twice a week for my back.
I find most waiting rooms somewhat sterile in their decor and only moderately comfortable. Often there is not enough seating and what there is is crammed together to the extent that physical contact with the person sitting next to you is hard to avoid.
But I try to be upbeat and ignor the reason I am there. Obviously something is wrong with me. I'm hurting, or sick and most likely cranky because of it. But the bright side is I usually have a chance to catch up on some reading. It's wise to take your own material if you want to read anything more current than 1985.
But back to the back situation. With this therapy thing I look around at my fellow clients and am thankful that my ailment is no worse than it is. I actually find the choice of reading material amusing. This is physical therapy mind you. The magazines include Sporting News, Tennis, Vigor and Sports Illustrated to name a few. Wow. Talk about wishful thinking!
