“How’s 10 work, next Tuesday?”
I squint at the tiny calendar on my phone screen.
“Oh, no, I have a physio booked at 10:30 for my back. Something later that day?”
One of my dentist’s reception/booking/billing/appointment-making staff squints at her screen.
“Not Tuesday. Would 10:30 on Wednesday work?”
I swipe to the next day.
“Oh, no, I have to see my doctor about a sleep apnea test. Thursday?”
“Oops, no, sorry. Physio follow-up again. ”
As I try to enter this new medical appointment in my calendar app without losing it and without overlapping with any other such, I wonder when I became my parents.
