Monday 14th April. 4pm: "I didn't realise it took so long to get seen in A&E, I've never been before" I said to Ivano, whilst talking about the time his Dad sliced his finger off.
Monday 15th April. Midnight: "I can't believe we've been sitting here waiting for someone to see you for over three hours" I say to Gemma, in A&E, completely disheartened and sick to death of listening to people chew gum loudly all around me.
What are the chances? In 24 and a half years the very first time I ever utter the words "I've never been to A&E" I end up there, on a completely unrelated matter with a completely separate person, just a few hours later.
