I had a ENT appointment today in one of those classic Beaux Arts 1930's buildings downtown (resulting in excavating what appeared to be a milk-dud from my ear; completely disturbing but I feel better).
Taking appointments in these architectural relics is one of the better perks of living in the city. The Medico-Dental building on Post has a mission style lobby, five brass elevators, halls full of office doors that should belong to Guy Noir, even a brass mail chute. You expect to hear the sound of typewriters and see doctors smoking around every corner. There's a similar medical building that I've been to on Sutter.
I wish I had worn a trim wool suit and heels instead of jeans!
