Oh my. Oh my. I was a leader on one of the Camp Narnias! It was
probably 1985 or so. I was only ever able to go on the one because the
timing kept on conflicting with my exams (I was at uni) and then I moved
interstate. What a small world!
Peri: Doctor, why do you have a stick of celery in your lapel?
Doctor: Does it offend you?
Peri: No, just curious.
Doctor: I'm allergic to certain gasses in the Praxis spectrum.
If the gasses are present, the celery turns purple.
Peri: Then what do you do?
Doctor: I eat the celery.
If nothing else, it's probably good for my teeth.
