Infection Happy Hour

While I was at the doctor last week for a sore back, I saw signs posted on the wall that said, “Infection walk-ins from 10-11 every weekday.”
This is a new thing that our local doctor’s office is trying for the winter. If you feel like you might have a throat, ear or urinary tract infection, you can just come in at the walk-in time without an appointment to take a quick test and get a prescription if you need it.

I saw that sign, looked at the clock that said 9:45 and thought. NOOOOOO!!!!!  Because in my head, when I hear “infection walk-ins” I’m just thinking of a horde of infected zombies roaming slowly down the hall all at once.

Sure enough, when I came out of the office, it was 10:05 and there they were, about 15 of them all crowded by reception.  I held my breath and hurried through as fast as I could.  INFECTION HORDE!

I took a quick picture with my camera and attached it here. (Well, ok there might be a bit of photoshopping, but I swear this is exactly what they looked like!)

Halloween costumes

Next week is fall break here in Stockholm – much like spring break, but in the fall…. yeah, you get it.  Anyway, because so many kids are going to be out of school next week, most kids get to wear their costumes to school today (Friday).

I have tried to convince my children to dress up as insurance salesmen, but they aren’t going for it.  I really thought it would be simple and we have a lot of ties.  I do have to praise my youngest who offered to be Bruce Wayne instead of Batman.  Good boy.

As for myself, I’m going as a vampire or zombie – depends on how the makeup turns out.  The rest of the building will believe I am a typical Halloween monster, but I know the truth.  My outift symbolizes the blood drained from my system in a soul-crushing workplace where we all must follow orders like mindless zombies.  But when my boss asks, I’m Dracula.
