one hundred and seventy-three: a letter for a very patient receptionist

Isabella is the receptionist at my new dentist. This woman is a saint. I have a very tricky schedule—every day is different. And yet she manages to schedule my cleanings with expert skill. Thank you + props necessary.

A big thank you for your unfaltering patience with me—I so appreciate it! I know my work schedule creates difficulty when making appointments. Thank you for always squeezing me in and working with me until something well, works (even if six messages are involved). You are a gem! And I just love getting appointment reminders from you—you have the best accent!

Thanks so much,
