Because it just seems to be the week for them!
So… I’ve been having some health issues, and like a lot of people I know, I’ve just been putting off getting everything checked out. That time span of defiance finally passed, and I had a doctor’s appointment this week.
It was the first time seeing this particular doctor, so, I ran the same gamut that we all do when having that initial interaction. You know the stuff I am talking about – Lots of forms, dismay at the inaugural weigh-in (for me, at least), then when they come join you in that little room you get to answer a bunch of questions so they can capture your health history.
Anyway – We get to more life-style type questions, and the subject of soft drinks comes up (to make sure I cover all vernaculars, I am talking about soda / pop / Cokes / fizzies).
And she asks me if I drink any, and I admit – albeit reluctantly – to drinking a lot of Diet Mountain Dew.
“Okay,” she says, leaning forward and looking at me over her reading glasses. “Define what you mean by ‘a lot‘. “
I looked her right in the eyes and said, “I decline to answer so as not to incriminate myself.”
She shook her head, sighed deeply, and made some really, really long notes in my chart…
I think our working relationship to solve my health issues will be quite interesting!
And today, I saw a fitness ad. The tagline said “What do sit-ups do to your body?”
Well, I really cannot speak for anyone else – But they make my body cuss and crave chocolate…. Just sayin…
Like I said, it’s a day for rambling thoughts, and I am full of them swirling in my head lately, so it’s a good fit.
Gonna get back to work on “Web of Secrets” now. But I hope what I shared made you smile, even if only a little. In an increasingly crazy world, I am a firm believer that we need to find the joy (and humor) whenever and wherever we can.
Until next time – Wishing you health, happiness, and great reads! – D.
