Mysterious body temperature, not high enough to be

Attack of obscure origin that can strike at any
time. Could be serious enough
to require hospitalization, yet is undetected by
medical technology. Victims

Elevated cranial protrusion usually caused by the
fall after a patatú. Can
also be caused by the sudden or unexpected encounter
with a cocotazo.

If you don't remember these you're not a typical
Puerto Rican!
