“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.

    I’ve asked myself the same question.

      Tom – 🙂 At least this is, for me, still the aberration, not the norm. But I can see that slippery slope from here . . .

    My slippery slope was like the Turtle Mountain slide!

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Barry – Hahaha. Yes, I find that I can never understand “what’s wrong” with other people until, all too soon, the same thing is wrong with me.
