... who only stand and waitOne thing about queues, sometimes people leave them. Depending on how the queue works, people behind the newly absent may get a major promotion. And in fact, my scheduled three-month wait for an operation on my cataract-afflicted right eye has now become a one-week wait!
I wonder how this will be reflected in our government's much-ballyhooed waiting-list reports.
In any case, I am jubilant and hopeful. What looked like three months of tedious degeneration of my vision is now a concentrated week of preparation and growing excitement.
