My Big Day
Regular readers will know that I didn’t win the Photographic competition but at least I was a runner up and my photograph will go on display at the hospital. There is a presentation for the winner today who will win an Olympus Pen camera and then there will be the big switch on of the Christmas Lights! It’s exciting for me because I’ll be venturing into foreign territory; over the border into the next town! I’m dressing smart-casual; I tried wearing a suit to go to the hospital once. I looked like a doctor; a young lady came up and told me she had a really embarrassing problem. I said, “I’m no gynaecologist; but I don’t mind tekkin a look!”
It is a brand new hospital with a corridor through out-patients that would double as a concert hall with big white spaces on the walls; that’s where my photograph will go. It will make a change for them to look at that rather than a poster telling them to give up smoking. I went to the hospital when it looked nearly finished, I went in the back way. I thought it was strange when I saw lots of parking spaces and then I walked into out-patients and it was like the Marie Celeste, empty; all the staff were gone and not a computer in sight. They had moved to the new building and so I was directed there across the car park and into the rear entrance. I walked along this long corridor it was like something out of that film The Island. Do you remember that about the clones? I have a clone, he lives in the basement of that hospital. I got to the end of the corridor and near Costa Coffee and there was an overpowering smell of coffee. I knew what it was it was Michael my clone trying to escape through the ventilation system just like in the movie. He nearly made it too, but he couldn’t go outside; he’s too institutionalised now… Do you remember Dolly, the cloned sheep, who aged too fast? Michael the clone is like that, he’s only 8 years old and looks 16, his hormones are raging as he goes through puberty. This is a little scary for those young, hot student nurses that have to give him a shower twice a day.
It’s time to cook lunch, lots to do today and I still have to get into my smart-casual outfit. More clone stories another day. I’ll tell you about mingling with the Mayor and other dignitaries at the Christmas Lights switch on another day…
