Jayden's father stopped at Melissa's desk recently to make his son's follow-up appointment.
“Your light's flickering up there.” He pointed to the long fluorescent bulb in the suspended ceiling above Melissa's head. It periodically would go dark, then sputter to life again. Melissa glanced up at it absentmindedly, then went back to her computer.
“Yeah, it's been like that for a while,” she noted. She handed Jayden's dad an appointment card and Jayden a sticker.
