    "It's terrible," she said, "I haven't moved my bowels in a week."
    "I see. Have you done anything about it?" asked the doctor.
    "Naturally," Preeto replied, "I sit in the bathroom for a half-hour in the morning and again at night."
    "No," the doctor said, "I mean do you take anything?"
    "Naturally," Preeto answered, "I take a newspaper."
