My ex was a nurse. Whenever she was a patient and had to wear a hospital gown, she would always grab two and wear one frontwards, the other backwards.
This summer, Methodist Hospital in St. Louis Park will join a select group of medical centers that are trying to close the dreaded gluteal gap patients get with most hospital gowns.

A Michigan man who thought he was having a stroke was hospitalized this week after eating several pot brownies that were baked by his teenage daughter, police report.
The victim’s 17-year-old daughter told cops that she left the brownies out because she did not think anyone in her family would touch them (the girl was apparently unaware of the deep affinity middle-age men have to such unattended sweets).
Back in my younger days, I had one guiding principle: Don’t do something stupid and you won’t get caught.
