He smiled at pie with proud appreciation, as it ,'ust been chosen Miss very sick?" 1 asked I had America. eagerly, ready to enjoy my [ea- tured role in "Returned from the Dead.* "Very," was tj, e solemn' reply. I or a moment of awed stillness, I paid my silent respects to this vanquished enemy. Then I continued with my curiosity. "Were you very worried?" I asked next. H9" 1 of my wits,- said John. , Ij00d '" ' answered checrtully Was anybody else worried too?" .™ , sadist -" laufihed John. We all were, haven't you heard i2t- P |lo " e ringing and ringing? Which reminds me," he said with the anticipatory flourish of a waiter producing the French pastries at the end of a meal, "this week you can have visitors, in fact, beginning todny." • * * IT was obvious that John expected tin's news to be as vfet- eome as a mail order catalog in a lonely farmhouse, and at first 1 thought so too. My part in the social proceedings was merely to smile wanly at each new face to demonstrate my recent illness, and to talk amusingly the rest of the lime to prove my recovery. Eventually I could have qualified as a diplomatic hostess, with gag-writing for radio on the side. Almost everyone who came entered with some token of appreciation, and at first, I looked eagerly to see what each new arrival had brought, like a spoiled brat who demands: "Whatcha got for me today?" My enthusiasm laded with the repetitiousness of the presents. My collection eventually included masses of flowers, which, although 1 ordinarily love lo have, depressed me with their funereal abundance; four boxes of mixed chocolates which the guests immediately proceeded to finish; and six books, two Lhe same, but all, of course, directly from the >es!-scl)rr lists. Most of the visitors wore a very proper, sober look, like a hearse driver making a professional call. The coy ones said very brightly: 1 Imagine a doctor's wife getting sick!" u> which my regular reply was: "You ought to sec the obituaries in the A.M.A." The point was plainly wasted, since to the average lay mind all deaths and illnesses are usually attributed to some doctor's delinquency. '"Tire more serious arrivals would have gruesome histories to list for comparison, and would each ofler a pet version of some "Fourteen Day Cure" which they had trild when similarly a/Hided, and which would surely have cured me in 24 hours. Some even stopped to emulate their owu particular doctors, as i[ 1 were under Lhe care of a veterinarian or a grocery clerk. One and all, they wanted to hear the gory details from start to finish, until I felt like apologizing for not having a fancy scar to show. "Were you in much pain?" I was hopefully asked. , ' "Where exactly did it hurt?" Most' o( course agreed that 1 must have had the most devoted medical care in the world, and the most scientific — two state- ncnLs I dared not dispute. I had ong ago learned that most people ihink that when a doctor holds lis wife's hand tenderly, he says, "Darling, you have a tachycardia," and that when he looks soulfully Into her eyes, he comments on the nequality of her pupils. Few stop to realize that obviously such romanticism would lead to the divorce court, or a lunatic asylum, and that the facts of life are inflexible. By the end of this last week In Jed, Saturday to be exact, al- uough I could recall DO feeling of equal importance since 1 was six years old and had orally removed my tonsils over and over ngain for the benefit.Jit the neighborhood juveniie cnrSregation, 1 was tired of the wjgjlc business.
