Finding myself patiently sitting in a crowded medical waiting room on Monday morning, I sat staring blankly at a spot just off from the blaring television. D sat in much the same position on my left. The lobby area was packed with folks waiting for outpatient procedures or for the patients themselves.
Having had a long night of no sleep and no food or drink, I was less than animated and had been sitting in a fugue state for over an hour when an upcoming broadcast announcement hacked through my fog.
"Fatal crash this morning in Parker. Happened last night. Details at ten." The newscaster boomed.
I blinked as my brain tried to work the calculation to no avail. I turned to D.
"Wow, that must have been some accident this morning if it happened last night."
