Overheard at Starbucks: a woman asking a doctor friend for advice on her HMO. She has some type of chronic illness and was upset that 1: her health care provider was only interested in managing the pain rather than finding a solution, and 2: she was being forced to play tag with a maze of doctors and health centers.

I knew she'd be in good hands with her doctor friend. He'd arrived at Starbucks before her, and while waiting had inadvertently scared Louie (it isn't hard to do). Wanting to make Lou calm, he patiently held out his hand for him to sniff, then fed him a stray Cheerio.
