Elie is sick. Steve lit up her throat with a flashlight and pronounced, "STREP!"

I make the call.
I am on hold.
I need something to do.
I make two right eared phone calls while the home phone asks my left ear to make a choice.
While hunting and pecking.
I am woman, see me multi-task.

After twenty minutes of the above, we have an appointment.

I congratulate myself for making the right choice.

Now, how to stop the annoying phone music in my head?

We've one here with the same swollen tonsils and red throat.

If everyone values our calls then why do we have to wait so long?

You and yours have a very Merry Christmas with all the trimmings, warmth and joy.
