Wow… a little praise from Dr Lisa?  That’s not what I was expecting at all.  Where was the usual foot up my ass?

So that’s 2 out of 3.  If only we could get the diet and exercise bit going consistently, I think we’d see a lot more of this.”

Yup, and pigs may fly…

Maybe it would help if you could visualize how bad that Coke is for you.  Set a glass of sugar on your desk, and every time that you want to get a drink, you look at how much sugar is in that glass.”

And then I made the motion of sticking my finger in the glass and licking it.

No, that’s not what I meant!

Does she really think that I don’t take pure sugar from time to time?  C’mon… I’m an addict!

As I entered the blood pressure results into my phone (there’s an App for that!) I noticed that the numbers were far better than anything I had recorded previously.  139/97?   147/116?   158/102?   177/111?    184/116?  How am I still alive?

Oh riiiiight… that nightly cocktail of prescription drugs that I try to remember to take after brushing my teeth!
