I had a physical this morning as part of renewing my life insurance policy which meant that I couldn’t eat after midnight last night since I had to be fasting for my blood work.
Ranger Rick Safety Tip: Never schedule a physical the week after Thanksgiving. Or for the day after you go to Trader Joe’s and they have their double creme brie on sale.
I was less concerned about the no food thing than I was about the NO COFFEE thing because drinking my
quart cup of coffee is the first thing I do every morning as it keeps the children alive, but I did my best to hold it together until my appointment and I was SOOO draggy that my blood pressure only read 90 over 58 though once I stepped on the scales, I’m sure it went through the roof.
After I was poked and prodded, they sent me on my merry way which happened to go right by Bruegger’s Bagels and I stopped in to grab something to take to work and I really wanted to say “Egg, cheese and bacon bagel” but I’m trying to be sensible since I have three Christmas parties coming up in the next few weeks and I begrudgingly said “whole wheat bagel with light cream cheese” but when I got to the office where I still have no desk and took a bite, I discovered they’d schmeared it with herb spread instead of plain cream cheese and that was eighteen kinds of wrong and it sent me on a path of eating a jillion different things trying to get the herb taste out of my mouth.
I was so preoccupied about the bagel that when I went to the file room to put some records aways, I forgot the security code and didn’t know that if you kept punching in the wrong codes, it eventually freezes the whole system whereby no one can get in AND alerts Corporate Security that someone’s trying to break into the room.
And then I came home and decided that I’d wipe the slate clean by going out for a run and came home and may or may not have sustained a shoulder injury trying to wiggle out of my compression
People, it’s been a day.
I need a do-over.
And coffee first thing in the morning.
Have a nice day.
