Contents: What, no sheep? --
I can hardly wait for the sandman --
Complaint to four angels --
The still night: a soporific reflection --
Sedative reflection --
The strange case of Mr. Donnybrook's boredom --
Have you tried staying awake? or, They'll find a way to stop that, too --
Who did which? or, Who indeed? --
Curl up and diet --
Go ahead, it will do you good, or Her eyes are bigger than his stomach --
I can't have a martini, dear, buy you can take one or, Are you going to sit there guzzling all night? --
Quick, Hammacher, my stomacher! --
The pizza --
Song for ditherers --
Thoughts thought while waiting for a pronouncement from a doctor, an editor, a big executive, the Department of Internal Revenue or any other momentous pronouncer --
The Wendigo --
From a Manhattan tomb --
Next! --
Down the mousehole, and what science missed there --
Good riddance, but now what? --
A bulletin has just come in --
A man can complain, can't he? (a lament for those who think old) --
Taboo to boot --
Song for a temperature of a hundred and one --
The germ --
One third of a calendar --
The common cold --
Man bites dog-days --
Winter complaint --
The sniffle --
Can I get you a glass of water? or, Please close the glottis after you --
Fahrenheit gesundheit --
Requiem --
Visitors laugh at locksmiths or, Hospital doors haven't got locks anyhow --
We're fine, just fine or, You'll be astonished when I'm gone, you rascal you --
So penseroso --
I'm terribly sorry for you, but I can't help laughing --
Tell it to the Eskimos --
This is going to hurt just a little bit --
A clean conscience never relaxes --
Platitudinous reflection --
Peekaboo I almost see you --
Eheu! Fugaces or, What a difference a lot of days make --
Let's not climb the Washington Monument tonight --
Up from the egg: the confessions of a nuthatch avoider --
Birthday on the beach --
And how keen was the vision of Sir Launfal? --
You can be a republican, I'm a gerocrat --
Crossing the border --
What the well-read patient is talking about or, Look, Ma, what I got! --
Cousin Euphemia knows best or, Physician, heal somebody else --
MS found in a quagmire --
I yield to my learned brother or, Is there a candlestick maker in the house? --
Arthur --
The strange case of the lucrative compromise --
When the devil was sick could he prove it? --
No doctors today, thank you --
What to do until the doctor goes or, It's tomorrow than you think --
I will arise and go now.
Responsibility: Illustrated by Milton Glaser.
