medicine show

Are you one of those people who snoops around the medicine cabinet when you use the bathroom at somebody else's place? I'm not. It's only been in the last few years that, via an accumulation of anecdotes, I've come to appreciate how common it is. Last night I had about twenty-five people over to the RV, as part of the gauntlet of going-away activities currently underway. Before people arrived, I put the following note on the middle shelf inside my medicine cabinet:



This morning, I opened my medicine cabinet and saw someone had turned it around and written:



(Note to Jeremy Freese Healthwatchers: I do not actually have any kind of "fungal infection", whatever exactly that is, or medicines suggestive thereof.)

Update: Nina has written a post about the party, complete with a couple not exactly flattering photographs of this blogger.

This morning? Oh Jeremy, you found that last night... or perhaps you don't remember...

Okay, today has resembled the basic premise of "Dude, Where's My Car?" way more than what I am comfortable with. But I think I'll avoid getting into that here on JFW.

You did all of this on a TUESDAY NIGHT? Wow, I am jealous.

I note that the naked Thanksgiving rumor is now spreading across the blogosphere. This is going to be one of those things that you're telling my colleagues at ASA in 20 years, isn't it?

Also, as mentioned, I woke up at 5 am because I was a) kind of still drunk and b) wearing my contacts, and it was only at around 4 pm that I suddenly remembered (vaguely) telling someone with great passion about my experiences of failure in junior high last night, and how they had shaped my psyche. Was that you? Um.

Speaking of 'medicine show', when you get to Harvard Sq., stand in front Nini's and point -- for visiting lawyers' benefit -- across the street, up to the window of 'Dewey. Cheatham and Howe'.
[Countdown is on, and yeah, this note has nothing to do with your medicine chest.]
