There's a lot of whispering that goes on in our little waiting area. People talking low, like people do in doctor's waiting rooms. Then you'll see someone lean down, and crane their neck, looking left. Then straighten up and turn to their companion and whisper again, and then the other person will lean down too. And they'll kind of smile and laugh together.
It's fun when all the chairs are taken, because it can be delicate to get a good look at the spot behind and between the chairs when they're occupied, without seeming rather indiscreet and strange.
My favorites are the elderly women, the ones who can't see very well to begin with. These women just cannot believe their eyes. A cat in the waiting room! My goodness. Whoever heard of such a thing. Cats in the waiting room indeed.
