A Prescription I've Been Longing For
Following this morning's skin-carving procedure - no photos will be provided - my dermatologist prescribed a regimen for which I've longed. She said, "Be lazy for a couple of days."
I thought, "I can handle that."
It reminded me of a story I've mentioned before about one of my aunts. She was anemic as a child and was taken to see Dr. Moeur, a rough old guy who later became governor of Arizona. He told my grandmother, "Take that girl home and give her plenty of red meat and red wine."
I've searched the globe for a doctor who'd prescribe red meat and red wine but apparently the medical profession has declined since Dr. Moeur's day.
I'll settle for lazy.
