Steve’s heat stroke

Day of beach white sand snorkeling mangroves vincas a tiny day-old puppy thrust into my arms as sport. The bikie leader sees the Che badge on Little Ted and makes a round circle on his upper arm – “Are you this?”*

Steve’s temperature was 36.9 and dropped to 36.6, then went up to 37.7. He’s now stopped shivering and is sitting on 37.**

* He means: Are you a good scout, a young pioneer, a goody two-shoes?
