DISCUSSION

I first read that as fisting tarantulas...

I am so thankful to live here, get treated with the medical care I get, and not have to suffer like that. Compared to this, my complaint about "there's not enough napkins." seems very small and silly.

They should get all the care they need and more, and if I were a doctor, I'd do it for free, for life.
