Well, not toxic, exactly... maybe just a little bit rank. But in a nice way. With a garnish.

doctor's waiting room

I've been waiting an hour now.

The other patients stare straight ahead and occasionally I make eye-contact with someone.
We each immediately study the ceiling, in case the other thought we were actually looking.

At a rough guess, I would say that I was the most contagious person in the waiting room and, possibly, The World.

I think the others agree, as they are all crammed onto one bench (all 15 of them, plus a buggie complete with smiley Afro-Baby) whereas I have a whole bench to myself.

Unless they are all feeling a bit cold, which is possible, I suppose.
