Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Turkey-Guy,

So a guy got beamed in the noggin by a flower pot falling from the second floor! Wow, I thought that only happened in really lame slapstick comedies. It was very nice of you to help this unlucky fellow! Your HIV-acquisition risk is nonexistent. Neither concern nor HIV testing is warranted.
