This morning, an elderly couple approached me in the hallway.
“Honey, can you help us find this?” the woman inquired, reaching out a tremulous hand with her instructions for reporting to her endoscopy appointment.
I smiled and waved them on, taking a few steps down the hall to point them to the Endoscopy suite.
“Thank you so much,” she nodded, retrieving her paper from my hand.
“Anytime,” I responded. “Have a good one!”
…it took me an entire flight of stairs to realize what I’d just said.
