You might imagine that a story that included the phrase…
"My partner took me to the hospital that she works in because she wanted all her colleagues to laugh at me."
… would be mean or cruel, but as you follow Dr Daniel Reardon's story it just gets funnier and funnier. Our hero takes what seem to be very reasonable decisions. It's just …unfortunate… that each of those decisions leads him a step closer to that hospital bed.
I'm voting for Rowan Atkinson to play Dr Reardon in the inevitable film adaptation.
