- 2.5 hours spent driving my father to the VA clinic in [city several counties over.]
- 1 hour spent sitting in the waiting room as he is seen.
- 2.5 hours spent driving home.
Or, if I wanted to be saucy, I would say that my coccyx needs a good tug.
I should probably add a rimshot at the end of that, but I'm pooped and don't want to seem excessively anal.
