Phil Phelps was a pharmacist living in Philadelphia with wife Phillis. His life was pathetically pedantic, so he became a philatelist.
He traded in stamps and stuck to it becoming quite prosperous. He became a philanthropist.
His increasing prosperity attracted a woman named Philomena. He became a philanderer.
He tried philosophy but his prognosis remained paralyzed. A physic told him she could have predicted all this.
