    Hi Bill,

    That little haiku really hit home with me because recently I was in a Mexican hospital, standing 6’2″ but wearing a little green gown, very worn, cut for Mexican men and women who are closer to 5’4: on average, so the gown fell about two inches below my crotch. To make matters worse, the “bottom” tie in the back was missing, perhaps pulled off by a washing machine. My blood pressure skyrocketed!

    How unpleasant, Jim! They should have given you a second gown so you could fashion a matching sarong!

    prescription: / “take two gowns / and call me in the morning”
