Re: [MOL] June!



Okay you got me, definitely kinky.  You should be writing medical humor, no
doubt?  That's what I love about you, you say exactly what you think.   Your
plan of action  sounds good, the onc. nurse is correct,  I had forgotten
about the hazing, have heard it under several different names; but she is
right and I will be praying that is what has happened. Just the same I will
be following you as it maters.
Warmly, lillian
