Unfortunately, the hospital bed which I was staying was on the 2nd floor in room 222, with two beds and two bathrooms.
I was stuck!
Eventually my fever subsided-- and as I was on the mend watching day-time television, the 'Oprah Show' came on-- "The Power of Three!" She screamed to an exuberant audience.
Who knows what she was talking about, and who cares? All I know is that since then I have overcome my feverish obsession and paralysis of counting to two with the help of who else but the big "O."
Never underestimate the power of numbers... or Oprah Winfrey.
