Overheard in an elevator

One of the weird things about elevators is that you sometimes get to witness tiny snippets of people’s lives. And often those snippets are out of context.

Today I was riding up an elevator and a man and a woman were talking behind me. The woman said “He has a persistent sneezing problem.”

My mind started racing at the thought of such a thing. I tried to imagine what it might be like to find yourself constantly sneezing, wherever you go. Particularly in these pandemic times, that would be a very unfortunate affliction indeed. Poor guy. How on earth does he get through the day?

The conversation continued. The man asked “What are you doing about it?”

The woman replied “We asked the vet, and the vet said he would be ok.”
