“Didn’t your mother teach you to excuse yourself when you burped and there were other folks there?”

PHILIP
“Maybe, what’s it to you?”

TONY
“Just checking. ”

PHILIP
“All right, she did.”

TONY
“So … ”

PHILIP
“So, excuuuse me.”

TONY
“Now that’s better.”

PHILIP
“Can we not discuss this anymore?”

TONY
“C’mon Phil, I’m just trying to help you with your manners.”

PHILIP
“Thank you for your help, Mr. Clemens.”

Hospital bed - Oct 2 2009

Hi All,
I found him. Tony is in the hospital (again). He checked himself into St. Joseph’s Hospital yesterday after trying, unsuccessfully, to check himself in the day before through the emergency ward, and getting himself sent “home” at the end of the day — a bit ironic if you ask me.

He’s on the 4th floor, Room #4M16. If you’d like to visit him, he’d be delighted. I will try to see him over the weekend. Any ready-to-eat food you can bring him (only stuff that is easily chewable) will be very much appreciated, as his appetite is well beyond what hospital meal portions can fulfill.

Before you visit, check the hospital visiting times and associated regulations at stjoe.on.ca/patients/visitor/index.php.

Philip
