First of all, I want to thank everyone for their kind words about my sister, Woglinde, who died two weeks ago. I really appreciate all your cards. And I really am doing much better.
Here's a picture taken at my last chemo treatment at Tufts last week.
Don't get me started on the crown. All I have to say about that is: When someone insists that the crown they are trying to stick on your head actually belonged to Ivan the Terrible, don't believe it!!!!
Actually what I want to call to your attention is a despicable practice that permeates the entire veterinary industry. Look closely at the upper right corner of the whiteboard in the background and you will see: "Tucker." "Rose." "Barclay."
"But 'Boswell,'" you might be saying, "what on earth is wrong with putting quotation marks around pet names???"
The implication, my friend, is that this is not the real Tucker, but merely a rabbit who thinks he is Tucker. And that this rabbit has somehow persuaded you, his hapless owner, of that as well. So to humor you and your rabbit, we will call him (wink wink) "Tucker." Until you leave the building, that is, when we start calling him Mr. Rabbit.
I'm putting my foot down on this one, and refusing to acknowledge anyone that calls me "Boswell."
Just call me Boswell. Thanks!
