Tale Weaver #78 July 28th – Waiting
My Biggest Dread
My mother gave me the awful news the day before my appointment.
I worried all day and felt nervous and totally miserable.
The night was not any better. I tossed and turned and had nightmares.
Morning came sooner than I wanted it to. My stomach felt so upset that I was unable to eat.
The time arrived and we left the house. There was a very long line outside the building and we inched our way toward the door at a snail’s pace.
I could not concentrate or talk. I stared off into space and wished I could escape.
Finally, much to my dismay, it was my turn! I stepped up to the table, a nurse swabbed my arm, then gave me a shot of polio vaccine.
The wait was over!
