Words and Picture: Sitting on a Pumpkin

A pumpkin hiding under a chair in the hospital waiting room.
I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion.

HD Thoreau, Walden

I don't know whether somebody over at the hospital is a Thoreau fan. I do know that they had a lot of decorative pumpkins in the waiting room where people loitered until called for their medical checkups, and most of them were hiding under chairs.
