"Oh! I take it I have your permission to work my project in during the day, then?"

Average Rating of 3.3 from 3 reviews: ****
JoJo Biggins

Kind of interesting storyline, but the ending is way too trite.

A story about dedicated pathologists fighting a plague that caused people to fall in love while fighting the infection in themselves. It's from 1954 and not too dated, worth reading for a chuckle.

A. A. Arraes

A nice mix of understated commedy,
science-fiction and romance...
A nice tale all around!
