‘The Deuce’ back from Jolly Ol’e:
she and mom share colds*!
- (Emerson, near Doctor, and arrived recently from Mother Tongue Isle and her mom just last week told me she contracted her nasty cold over the transatlantic – alack and alas no longer by cable – telephonically. He who must not go running after colds now has twice the fun. Doctor her mom and Em, go sans stethoscope into our worlds but so far each has declined the offer of fresh ginger or lemon grass. My parsley still shivvers, however. Need I begin growing feverfew?)
