doctor sent your husband's biopsy to the lab yesterday, a biopsy from
another Mr. Sanders arrived as well, and we are now uncertain which one

other one tested positive for AIDS. We can't tell which is your

"That's dreadful! Can't you do the test again?" questioned Mrs. Sanders

"Normally we can, but Medicare will only pay for these expensive tests
one time."

"Well, what am I supposed to do now?"

"The people at Medicare recommend that you drop your husband off
somewhere in the middle of town. If he finds his way home, don't sleep
with him."
