Kickass, the doorstop dog, having failed miserably at breaking the keeper’s offensive preoccupation with himself and his ailments, reports that he—the keeper, apparently does not have that classic Frank Sinatra cold after all, but is instead suffering from the flu, triggered by a flu. shot he got last Monday.
It figures: the keeper stops at a protective medical arterial and gets rear-ended by a semi load of viral elephant shit.
Since science will show beyond question that whatever misery the keeper suffers, it is always infinitely worse for him than for all others. He plans to fund research into this, setting aside at least $20 or $30 for a study entitled “I am seriously ill; you are being a baby.”
