Archetypes Observed in the Urgent Care Waiting Room This Morning
(I'm fine, thanks for asking)

1. Howling children; listen, kid, I understand you don't feel well, but lay off the pipes, huh?

2. 30-ish woman in abject tears; I don't know what was up with her, but I'm assuming it's not a pleasant story.

3. Middle-aged women with the approximate IQ of a bar of hand soap discussing last night's Kerry-Bush debate ("that Kerry looks like he pays a lot to get his hair done. Makes you wonder, huh?").

4. 82-year-old-man hitting on 21-year-old-receptionist (both ages came up during their conversation) by bragging that he'd been married for 58 years, and all the young men are liars and thieves.

5. Gangsta-type guy trying to be a good father for about ten minutes, until he got irritated with his child and plunked her down to watch The Price is Right while he went off and fiddled with the self-service blood pressure machine (he would later return and get very, very involved in watching a woman on Price play Plinko).

Plinko is one of the best games on The Price is Right. The best, however, is that yodeling mountaineer who falls off the cliff if you mess up.
