Beware of the Ides of March
March 15, 2007
This is my public service announcement for today.
When the doctor’s office leaves you a message about some blood work that you had done and says that you should follow up with the office…
Do not consult Dr. google before you are able to get in touch with them and find out your exact results.
Otherwise you will spend your morning looking at your children wistfully, sad they they will be forced to grow up without a mother and mentally composing your obituary. Because you just know that you will have that very very rare disorder. I know I can’t be the only one with a flair for the dramatic and an overactive imagination. I am just happy my husband didn’t answer his cell phone when I called to tell him farewell.
Then when you finally get in touch with the doctor’s office and they tell you that your blood sugar was just slighly low and you should have the test redone when you get your thyroid checked again in two months…
that they aren’t worried but thought I should follow up with any one of the many doctors that I seem to have now that I am an old fart who requires a day-of-the-week pill container.
Well, when that happens you will feel stupid.
And then you will write in run-on sentences and switch your pronouns so fast you can’t really be sure if you are even talking about yourself any longer.
Then you (I) will need to go to the pantry to eat more Swedish fish. It is medically neccessary now I (you) think.
