There I was in a waiting room full of the walking wounded. It was my first physical therapy session and never having needed this service before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I heard my name called. Struggling to my feet, I turned toward the voice belonging to my physical therapist and who should appear before me? Yes, it was Agador
from The Birdcage. Oh, he introduced himself as Paul but he wasn’t fooling me — it was Agador Spartacus alright. There was a distinct possibility that phys therapy might not be so bad after all.
There was no Gloria Estefan music playing and the characters in my little movie were dressed down somewhat. Still, as I watched Agador manipulating my arm and hand putting me through my paces, I felt sure Robin Williams (Armand) was lurking in the background.
With my pain threshold rapidly approaching the Red Zone, Agador informed me our session was about over. Unable to resist, I looked up and said, “Agador I need a Pirin tablet”. My new friend just smiled and escorted me back to the waiting room.
