“You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog.” – Harry S Truman

I just finished up a doctor’s appointment. Afterwards, I had requested information from the receptionist. She went to the back to check with another doctor regarding administrative stuff. I patiently sat and waited. It had been about 5 minutes and a middle-aged man entered the front door. We were waiting another couple minutes and I could sense his anxiousness. He was fidgety and pacing.

He asked, to no one in particular, “Is there anyone here to check me in?”

I said, “She’s in the back looking for an answer to my question.”

He audibly mumbled “Mmhhm”.

Literally, 10 seconds later, he said, “Do you know where she is?”

(I wanted to say, “She left for lunch and she wanted me to let you know that since you were late for your appointment you will need to reschedule”).

However, in the same voice and with the exact same words; I said, “She’s in the back looking for an answer to my question”. Except this time, I looked at him and made sure he heard me!

Hello there. Everyone is an expert in their own mind. In the Present, we think about the Past, which dictates our Future. Don’t beat yourself up about The Past; there were too many non-constant variables to predict The Future. However, if you end up treating the Future like a crystal ball don’t be disappointed in it’s outcome but remember it ultimately was your Own Choice. Subconsciously living in a Conscious world or is it the other way around? Benjamin Schleibenhammerstew
