"Doc. Could I just get cleaned up, please?" I asked. I mean, it was a monkey in a coat. A monkey with a really long, white mustache. A monkey who was the doctor. A monkey who insisted on being called "Doc". A monkey who was way too interested in anatomy and asking weird questions. A monkey who- you know what, screw it. I was out of there.

"Alright, alright! I'll get a bucket of water and a washcloth for you. Stay inside the tent," Dr. Jacobin said impatiently. He disappeared somewhere behind a white curtain, and I was left alone with the still unconscious Uniquex. The medical tent wasn't anything special. Th
