I showed him my band and he said he had a better one. And he wanted me to go to physical therapy. And then things took a downward turn. The scheduler found a PT appointment in a week and a half at 5 pm. NFW. His office is in the center of downtown. I'm not doing that at 5 pm. and a week and a half?? I plan to be cured by then. I squawked and he rescheduled for 4 pm in two weeks. And I could pick up my elbow brace on th 4th floor.
So I go to the 4th floor. I had waited about 10 minutes when a woman came out and called Susan and a guy (swear) got up and went back with her. A woman next to me got up, confused. Turned out, there were 3 Susans sitting right there together and one was a guy. OOOOOh Kay.
The second Susan went back about 15 minutes later. And I waited and waited and waited. I heard someone making a PT appointment at the desk so while I waited I went up to that guy and asked him if he could change my appointment to something better. He got me 9 am tomorrow at a building I can easily get to by bus.
I waited some more. Finally a woman came out and got me. She was borderline rude and it took less than 2 minutes for her to get the brace, put it on, show me how and send me on my way.
But, swimming! In order to make a 9 am appointment tomorrow, I'd need to leave for swimming at 5:30. Do I want to do that? and what if it's crowded and I get stuck in traffic? So tomorrow will be Yet Another Adventure. A bus ride downtown in the morning and then swimming in the middle of the day. Oh wait, that means Papa Murphy's near the pool will be open so I can get pizza for dinner after my swim. Ok, that works.
I really could skip a swim day but, my tracker has my current streak at 197 days of hitting my goal in a row. I really really want to see 200. It's all about the tracking. And the streak won't see even 250 because the gym will close on Christmas so no swimming. Sigh.
