After losing her head, she realized that the rest of her body was falling apart! She had consented to be a guinea-pig in a clinical trial for new drug that had potential to cure her Parkinsonism. She was asked to draw an apple.
How do you feel?
This pencil is not in my control.

Nine doses later –Want to give it another try?
I shall draw it in one stroke with no break!
Thirteen doses later ….
This shall be the best apple ever.
She handed the sheet to the investigator and it was a perfect apple. The investigator’s eyes glittered. After a week (without the drug) …..
How do you feel now?
The drug has worn off – this pencil is mighty hard to hold.
