Oh,what I would have given to have one of these sets when I was little! That’s a whole freakin’ office in a box! Can’t say much for the nurse’s cap, though. I could make a better one out of a piece of typing paper. I made a ton of caps back then. ***** Lots of things going

Secretly and with deft precision, she feels for enlarged lymph nodes while dancing with her target. Audaciously, she audits his auditory acumen by whispering in his ear. Her diagnosis?

So that’s my problem! I’m awake, but my liver bile is still asleep! Who knew? Isn’t “liver bile” redundant? I wonder what’s in those Carter’s Little Liver Pills?

Seems it wakes up more than just your liver bile! ****************************** What
