An Hour I Won’t Get Back

I took today off from work, yay! For the past seven months or so, I’ve been taking a day off from work when I’ve had a doctor appointment that day. These are the only days I’ve taken off from work this year so I don’t feel bad about it. Yes, it’s true in Canada we have free health…
