“Honey, I think I’m having a problem.  An old person problem.  I’m having trouble remembering what med does what thing.  Like this one, the label says ‘diarrhea’ on it.  So I know which one it is…  There are too many!  How am I supposed to keep track of them?!  It doesn’t help that everything has two names!  Like characters in a Russian novel!”


“No, in a Russian novel, everyone has three names.”


“Did you ever read a Russian novel?”


“Oh, which one?  War and Peace?”


“Brothers Karamozov?”


“Crime and Punishment?”


“Anna Karenina?”
