Game description

A short story from Johann Peter Hebel. It is not usually any fun to pick up a prescription in the chemists; but once upon a time it was a little bit amusing. A man from a outlying farm pulled up in front of the town chemist in his trap pulled by two bulls. He unloaded a large wooden living door and carried it in. The pharmacist could not believe his eyes and said: &quote; hey, my friend, what do you want with your living room door in here. The carpenter lives two doors down & quote; The man told the pharmacist that the doctor had visited his poorly wife and wanted to prescribe a potion but there was no paper, no quill and no ink in the house, only some chalk. The kind doctor wrote the prescription on the living room door and the kind pharmacist should now be so good as to mix up the potion.

Well, if it only did good. The person who knows to help himself in an emergency is well equipped.
