I recently hobbled to the drugstore to pick up painkillers after minor

outpatient knee surgery, only to discover that the pharmacist hadn't yet

filled the prescription. My doctor's order of 90 generic Percocet exceeded

the number my insurer would approve, he said. I left a short time later with

a bottle containing a smaller number.


When I got home and opened the package to take a pill, I discovered that

there were 42 inside.
