Third time’s the charm?

So HF is kindly accompanying me to my third of three urgent doc visits this week- I’ve been jumped by bronchitis, sinusitis, and laryngitis simultaneously, and it’s taking some tweaking of my antibiotics to keep me reasonably upright and functioning within working requirements. I’m embarrassed though- because I’m here in the ER. Again. And as I was shyly slinking into the front entrance, HF turned and emphatically stated:

“Now remember, even though you’re paying for this service, everyone here is absolutely disgusted that you’re using it.”

He then kindly offered to buy me a bag of chips from the in-clinic vending machine. He thought I could use the bag. To hide my face? He then apologized, as the bag would obviously be too small.

Such a nice man.
