In other exciting news!!!

I had to visit the local GP a few days ago… routine thingy, nothing important.

He looked at his records. Conversation ensued:

Him: “I told you before that you had to get a cholesterol test done, and you haven’t been back for it yet”

Me: “Er… yes… (long pause) I keep forgetting.”

Him: “Yes, you do, don’t you. The form I have for this test is dated May 2005!”

Me: “Oops”

Him: “Do it soon. I’m here early in the mornings, why don’t you come before work some time?”

Me: “How about I leave it until my (mumble)th birthday, a nice present!”

Him: “No, that’s 6 years away, nice try but too long.”

Me: “Drat! Foiled again!”**

So today I was up at the crack of dawn, and standing in the doctors office at 7:45 am having blood sucked out. What fun!

I’ve been on a strict cholesterol controlling diet of dark chocolate and red wine, so I figure there won’t be any problems. :)

Chocolate and red wine? They cancel each other out, don’t they?

(Ha Ha My anti-spam question is “What colour is red wine?“)

lol. I hate cholesterol tests. Especially when they come back with bad news even though you’ve been working at it :( Anyway, hope yours is all good.

I don’t think I’ve ever had a cholesterol test, or even thought about the implications of getting one, until now. Chalk this up as one more thing to keep me awake at night.
