very long hallway

I’ve been meaning to post this for like ever, since the night Eddie brought Thomas to the emergency room at the first of this month. This has to be the longest hallway I’ve ever been down. I measured it on GoogleMaps. It’s somewhere around 330 feet, north wall to south wall. But when Thomas called to tell me what the ER doctors had told him that night, I was at the far end of this hall, then turned to walk back up to the other end, and walked all the way back. Yes, I almost missed my bus, but listening to him, I couldn’t just stand at the bus stop, either. I had to be doing something, else I’d likely have literally climbed the walls.
