Hospital Station - James White

I have a whole list of things I should be doing today because I'll be spending most of the next couple days at my sister's. Instead, I'm reading.


Anyway, unintentional funnies:


"He was the proud possessor of a small dog which stuck so close to him that visiting extra-terrestrials were inclined to assume a symbolic relationship." (53)


"He was very attached to his dog, so much so that non-human members of the staff suspected a symbiotic reassuringly." (103)


Dear editor of this book, the phrase is "symbiotic relationship."
