Operation! - cried Ivan Trofimovich - you mean boring through my head!... No, not for anything on earth! It would be better just to die of it, rather than dying under your knife. - But it’s the only remedy. - No! Not for anything on earth! - But you are feeling unbearable pain in your head, which will get worse and worse.... - No! , it’s all gone now.... - But two hours before this?... - It’s gone, I’m telling you! Completely gone! All the efforts of the physician were in vain: he saw that his aim of frightening the patient had been too successful and decided that he needed to moderate it a little.
After a while he had a second attack, even worse than the first; again the vodka - and again it helped. Then a third one - and the grape vodka did not help this time. In vain, Ivan Trofimovich increased his medicinal intake: he just felt worse and worse. Ivan Trofimovich got cold feet; he felt as if something was moving and scratching inside his head: it was awful! And from that time, Ivan Trofimovich had terrible dreams. First he would think that his skull was a whole nest of frogs and all kinds of reptiles.
A toad in the head.... - Goodness me, Ivan Trofimovich! Where did you get that from? - How did I get it? I’m not going to keep anything from you, old chap, any more than from my spiritual father; I’ll tell you everything. I got attached to my cat.... Remember, I had a cat, such a marvellous, warm one - deuce it! - a black, glossy one.... It took to whispering in my ear, the cursed thing: whispering and whispering and it whispered a toad into it.... The doctor burst out laughing, for all he was worth.
