They're back

I had a lot of indigestion over the weekend. Because, I thought, the surgery had ordered the wrong pills - allopurinol instead of omeprazole.
Rang the pharmacy "yes sir, I'll check. Have you got the box - what does it say?"
Bugger, omeprazole in a pink box just like allopurinol. The bloke was happy.
I was embarrassed. Innocent surgery. A lot of unnecessary indigestion.

Yet another book about 'Life on Earth'
Origin Story: The Big History of Everything, David Christian, Allen Lane. 368pp, £20

Simple basics, ultra complex outcomes. Sadly, Gerard DeGroot, the Times reviewer feels he is no nearer understanding 'the perfection of a Bach sonata or the beauty of a flawless free kick'.
