Are Olson and Jerry acquainted? Friends? Relatives? Coworkers? Classmates? Other type of relationship?

Anyone else relevant involved (any other third party)? Did Jerry make a mistake that he is embarrassed about? Did he make a false assumption about something or someone? At the end of the puzzle, Jerry is embarrassed, but would Olson have a certain relevant emotion? Anger? Amusement? Chagrin? Sadness? Happiness? Satisfaction? Nothing in particular?

Would it be considered a minor symptom?

Did Jerry think that Olson was calling him a nasty person? disgusting? lazy? evil? rude? angry?

Olson must have a thesaurus, cause he's avoided seemingly every way there is to say "shortness of breath!" :)

Does he use a clinical term to describe J's shortness of breath? medical terminology?

In J's letter, does he insult Olson? or simply point out that he feels insulted by Olson?

In J's letter, does he insult Olson? Yes, but his note wasn't a letter or simply point out that he feels insulted by Olson?

****SPOILER****

Something a friend of mine did just post surgery, while still out of his mind on the meds. He doesn't actually remember it, which is why I'm glad I'm there to remind him. I just have to share it here.

One of his doctors had noted on his chart that 'patient is a little s.o.b'

What does my genius friend do in response? He writes 'well **** you too' underneath it, and then spent the next few days dying of embarrassment when someone gently points out to him that it stands for short of breath. Heavy duty painkillers are a wonderful thing.


This is from the same site I got "Overturned turnovers Part II," and I'd taken screenshots of stories I wanted to turn into puzzles from there, but I lost the folder of screenshots when my laptop crashed. Time to hunt them down again...

(Nice job Jackie for the solve and Grip for plenty of tenacity.)
