Clinical Trials

by Andrew Atkinson
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 18/02/2018

There are two things about my wife you need to know. First, that she does not suffer fools and invalids gladly. Second, she has a caustic, somewhat literary, sense of humour.

I’d come home early from work. Not feeling too good. My work colleagues suggested I go home. I guess they didn’t want to catch anything.

“It’s probably that Asian bug,' I explained to my wife with a sniff and cough. “I should be okay in a few days.'

“Yes, it could be Asian,' she replied. “Quite likely to be a dose of Sax Rohmer.'

“Of what?' I queried.

“Fu-ManFlu!'
