For example, the dermatologist he'd gone to in the morning for his foot condition. The Doctor had started writing a prescription while he stared down at Edward's pale foot on the tile. / 'Athlete's foot,' he said. / Edwards elbow touched a gray sign that urged him to talk frankly with his doctor about the fees for professional services. / 'How much?' / 'Ten dollars,' the doctor said. 'Don't get these pills mixed up. The black ones go in the water you soak your feet in, and the white ones you take.' / He laughed heartily. It was then that he looked like Santa Claus.''
