As I walked into the hospital today I noticed the information station manned by the volunteer "bluebirds". They are little old women, most all certainly in their 70's or 80's, who although called bluebirds, for some reason actually dress in pink. They do things like deliver flowers and emails to patients; they also answer questions of people entering the hospital. Apparently there are limits to the questions they will answer though.

Today, as usual, there were two little bluebirds sitting at the information desk in the hospital entryway. Taped to the front of their desk was a sign that read simply: "Impotents Anonymous" with an arrow pointing down the hall.

I must admit I wanted so very much to take a picture.
