I have been neglecting my blog a bit, and I apologize. It has been so very busy at the pharmacy as of late. I have been getting home late after work most days and am usually exhausted. Again, sorry for not posting much this month.
Today’s story is about one of our regular patients. Out of everyone, he is probably the most cheerful person to enter the building. He’s always got a grin on his face and seems to make everyone, employees and patients alike, laugh and smile. I look forward to his visits. They always break up the monotony of the day. The picture above is the perfect way to describe him.
He came in with his characteristic, happy demeanor, walking toward the pharmacy and whistling a happy tune. He always takes his hat off and bows, stating, “Good morning, my fine ladies and gents! How are you all on this wonderful day?” He makes conversation with those around him and just generally lifts all of our spirits. I asked him how he keeps such a happy attitude every time he visits us, and he answered me with the title line: “Every day is a holiday!” Then, he started singing the tune from Mary Poppins (“Every Day’s a Holiday with You, Burt”), inserting his and our names in place of the word “Burt” in the song.
His visits are usually very quick, but he always thinks of something witty to say on his way out. We’re always sad to see him go. If he were to get a pharmacy report card, in the comments section I would write: “[patient name] is a joy to have in the pharmacy.” =)
I hope your days are all going swell!
