Tickling My Funny Bone

Today begins a 4-day Memorial Day weekend for James and the kids. Isaiah's doctor ordered a hip x-ray and today was the first day we had available to take him in and get it done. I called ahead to be sure they'd be open:

Radiology: Good morning, Radiology--how can I help you?

Me: Yes. I'm calling to see if you are going to be open today. My son needs a hip x-ray.

Radiology: Yes, we are open. But we are working with a skeleton crew, so there might be a long wait if we get slammed by the ER.

I heard nothing after "skeleton crew".
