Day 2 #SOL16
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. ~ Benjamin Franklin
It is 4:13 PM, and I am still circling the office park looking for the correct building. I have a 4:15 appointment with a new allergist, and I am feeling just a little stressed. I find Building M, zip into a parking space, and power-walk to the office door. The receptionist greets me with a clipboard and a request to see the usual – my photo id, insurance card, and payment. I sit down to complete the papers before me, and I am distracted by voices coming from a loft office, CNN on the TV, and the doctor and nurses moving in and out of the room. I am not sure how I am feeling about this new office and new doctor.
After a few minutes the doctor calls me back to his office to discuss my current ailment and take my medical history. As I answer his questions, my eyes scan the massive desk before me. I am drawn to a book of quotes by Benjamin Franklin that sits atop a pile of medical magazines. It is the same book of quotes by BF that I own! (As you read more of my blog entires you will see that I LOVE quotes!) Well, if this doctor has such wonderful taste in reading material, he must be good, I thought.
My visit continues in an examining room. Once all the necessities are completed, I am again find myself in the doctor’s office to discuss the next steps and a plan of action. While waiting for him to return, I notice something that I hadn’t noticed before. There on his wall were many of the Franklin quotes written and illustrated by a child. Now I am totally convinced that this is the perfect doc for me. How can I go wrong with someone who obviously values quotable words and the works of children?
