#840 – annihilate this year

The doctor's waiting room experience has never been great, but the inclusion of TVs has been such a miserable development. That's probably why I made the (now odd to me) choice of writing the TV words as dialogue-sized and not something ambient in the background.

This one comes off a little bit glib I think - the friends have a moment, Will goes off merrily to therapy, reflects on his progress. But lurking beneath is the reality that Hanna owns the company, Hanna administers the rewards, Hanna approves of the treatment. I do address this as an issue at the very end of the series, almost too late. It's a problem for another stage of their lives. Eve and Will ultimately end up in the same boat, to deal with this problem together.

  1. Will is totally fine going to therapy and not uncomfortable at all.

  2. The doctor’s waiting room experience has never been great, but the inclusion of TVs has been such a miserable development.

    I wore 30dB to rock concerts (not a big part of my life) and noisier indoor sporting events. Then I started wearing them for sleep. Now I bring them many places like this for exactly this reason.

    1. UGH: …30dB earplugs…

    2. Luckily I can usually just turn off my hearing aids haha. But I carry a pair of earplugs for the same reason.

  3. "Annihilate this year" sounds so much less cute now.
