My balls hurt, that could be a wonderful start to the next story. The Doctor wanted to write about a realistic scenario and thought that Ralph’s life might be just that. Ralph’s latest outburst may be just the thing. He’s an ageing man that thinks he’ll survive without applying any care. Ralph was wrong of course.
He applies some cream to his balls but that’s the sum of his good health regimen. That and taking the drugs prescribed for him. He eats anything, drinks like a person who drink a lot and the extent of his exercise is in a minus situation. He exists by a fluke of nature that the Doctor fails to comprehend. The Doctor tries to educate this lump of bad living but it does not seem to work. The best he can do is to prescribe a range of drugs that keep this blancmange man alive. The drugs work of course but they add nothing in the positive ledger they just kept the negative side from falling further. more at http://www.ajmcrawford.com/the-doctor-and-ralph/
