“Ooh, look at your fingers, Jake,” Suzie said. “They’re full of warts. Have you been kissing any frogs lately?”
“You mean other than you, Suzie?” Jake laughed. “Besides, kissing a frog is not a prerequisite for warts.”
“Well, when I kissed a frog a few years back,” Suzie said, “I was hoping it would turn into a handsome prince, but all I got was a warty husband.” Suzie said. She reached out and grabbed Jake’s right hand. “Seriously, Jake, it’s not funny. I don’t know what’s causing those warts, but you should see a doctor. My friend Lizzy went to a dermatologist about her psoriasis. Whatever he did cleared it all up and now she worships him.”
“A few ugly growths might be indicative of some kind of fungus or viral infection,” Suzie said. “You don’t want those magic fingers of yours to fall right off your hands, do you?”
“Okay, fine,” Jake said. “Give me the name of that dermatologist and I’ll call first thing Monday morning.”
“Good for you, Jake. You’ve earned a tip of my cap.”
“And you, Suzie, have earned some very special attention from my magic fingers, warts and all.”
