  1. Just in case...

Five minutes later you have diagnosed my cold, and written me a prescription. On the way out I pay your secretary with the nice legs R300.
    But, you say, you studied seven years just in case it was not a cold but freakin’ hairy spider meningitis.

    Well, I did a six years apprenticeship as cabinetmaker ...
