I hate to admit this, but, a few weeks back, I applied for Medicare. Hey. at least I lived long enough to do that. What worries me is whether they'll get it straightened out while I'm still alive to use it.

I filled out everything to the best of my ability and, wouldn't you know it; there was a problem with my application. Now, these problems have to be straightened out with a phone call because making it wasy by putting it on line just makes too much sense.

So, today I set aside sometime to make the phone call knowing that I would be on Perma-Hold for a long time. While I was waiting listening to the snippet of New Age music that plays on an endless loop, I started daydreaming and a few thoughts occurred to me. I thought I'd share them with you. Next time you're on hold, you can mull over these deep questions and thoughts.

Of course the first thing that I thought of while on hold was: I'm calling because they say that some information I supplied doesn't match what they already have. Wait...they already have this information??? Why am I supplying it?

Sleeping is the human equivalent of rebooting.


I'm still on hold even after writing all this. I now know the snippet of New Age music by heart. I'm actually a little bit older. the first thing I'm going to use my Medicare for is a bad case of Athlete's Ear.
