"What is your pain level on a scale of 1 to 10, where zero would be no pain, and 10 would be if you had an attack of kidney stones while in active labor, and while all that was going on, you were set on fire. Starting with your genitals. And then you were disemboweled, and the bowels that were removed were then also set on fire. And then while you were running around in active labor, passing a kidney stone, on fire with your bowels also on fire, you accidentally stepped on a Lego with your bare foot. And that Lego was also on fire."
"It's an 11."
At long last, I have assembled the book of humorous medical short stories that I've been talking about for freaking ever:
We've got 36 stories for you: true, fiction, and in-between. Admittedly, about 25% of them are stories you may have read on this blog or another, but at least 75% is entirely new material. I worked really hard to put together an enjoyable experience for you.
Please check it out!
After much thought and discussion, I've decided that all profits will be going to Deworm the World Initiative. It's incredibly sad that there are children out there who are riddled with parasitic infections that they could be rid of for a medicine that costs only pennies. Even if you don't want to buy the book, consider donating individually to this worthy charity.
Wonderful choice of a charity Fizz!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Nobody seemed enthused about Red Cross, and the scandals were a little disturbing. This one seemed really worthy.Delete
Just got it for my Kindle!ReplyDelete
I was planning to buy it on my Kindle! But then I saw that I can read it for free with the Kindle owners lending library. So I'm going to do that. I was wondering if you could tell me, do the authors get a payment for people who borrowed books through the system? Is it the same as if the person had bought it electronically?ReplyDelete
I will get less money if you borrow it than if you buy it, but it's still a donation :-)Delete
