The Country Doctor

Too. Hot. To. Type. But I leave you a nice. Long. One.

Triviatum: This from a college short story anthology, with notations, footnotes, the works. There’s one worth noting– when the doctor reveals his Christian name, ‘Trifon,’ we see footnote #10, which reads:

Trifon is roughly the equivalent of “Cuthbert.”

So I’ve learned something new today, and I hope you did too.
