Not What You Like To Hear

I'm standing in a random Laughlin casino at the desk where you get a Player's Card. It's noon and I slept about ten hours the night before so I'm feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. As the clerk across from me enters data onto her computer, the woman next to her keeps catching my eye.

I must look like someone she knows.

I answer questions and wait, still unable to shake the feeling that the other woman is staring. Finally, I meet her gaze dead-on and offer up a questioning smile.

She smiles back. Here it comes. I look like her sister or something.

"You don't feel very well, do you?"

Huh?? Crap, I'm really gonna have to concentrate on making that appointment to get my eyes done.
