Doc appeared to be a bit tired after the holiday. Didn't bother to ask why. He asked:
D: So how did the doc treat you?
M: She was fine, can't complain.
D: She said she found you unnerving.
M: Did she say unnerving or unveining?...hahahaha
D: What was that all about?
M: Oh that was nothing. One of those "you had to be there" jokes. Have you read Love in time of Cholera?
D: No, why?
M: It's amazing that everyone has heard about it, but too few have actually read it.
D: Have you?
He didn't prod further. Thankfully.
