Date: Fri, 5 Aug 1994 18:38:00 EDT From: "Dennis.Preston" <22709MGR[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]MSU.EDU> Subject: new word contest In a nondialect mode (I suppose), I would like to supplement the other Dennis' contest with a paltry one of my own. Since people can't smoke at all in hospitals, the (I assume) nearly cured are also released to the outside for a smoke. What word (or phrase) would describe asmoker pushing along his or her own portable IV unit, a sight which my wife and I still find gallows-humorous, although we have witnessed it many times. Dennis Preston (the [dIn[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]s] Dennis).
