A Few Minutes, Episode 10: The Devil


As I awoke, only my left eye would open.  The right was swollen shut.

“Ah, I let the Devil out of the bottle and he kicked my ass again.”

I heard her as she squeezed water from a cloth.  The smell was familiar, but I could not place it.

“Eucalyptus?  Mint?”

The instant it graced my face, its warmth relieved my pain. Neither of those…chloroform.

  1. I’ve never dealt with chloroform outside the fume hood.

    Also glad for the little transcript today – my mom is visiting and anything containing the devil is off-limits while she’s around!
