Gonna Cost Triple – Once when Bill arrived in Singapore, he had caught a bit of a cold on the plane. He wasn’t afraid to try traditional Chinese medicine, so we took him to a shop in Chinatown where they brewed it up and let you drink if from a bowl (trad tonal, instead of a cup) while seated in the shop. The doctor took one look at Bill – a giant of a man by Singapore standards – and said, “This is gonna cost you TRIPLE the price!” Bill agreed that sounded fair! He sat and drank the medicine (a bitter, witchy brew) cheerfully. Passers by were so intrigued, he drew a big crowd. The doctor joked that he’d hire Bill to sit there all day as an attraction, the cheerful foreign giant.
