Spent half the day undergoing my annual health assessment. As far as I can tell (pending the results of the blood test), I’m as healthy and hopelessly out of shape as ever!
Other things I have learned:
I read better when I wear my reading glasses.
My sense of balance is atrocious, making me a poor candidate for that heist team member who has to negotiate a building-bridging telephone line like a tightrope walker.
I really don’t like needles. ESPECIALLY when they’re piercing my flesh. And ESPECIALLY when they’re used with the express purpose of drawing blood from my arm only to fail – twice! – and have to tap a vein in my OTHER arm!
I also really don’t like the sight of my own blood leaving my body.
It’s very hard to keep your eye open/from watering when you know it’s going to be blasted with a puff of air.
My grip strength is decidedly average.
During an ultrasound, never joke about wanting to know the sex of the baby.
I have a truly terrible sense of coordination, making me a poor candidate for that heist team member who has to negotiate the laser maze.
When you’re unable to provide a urine sample is when they need it and when you ARE able to provide a urine sample, they don’t want it. (Solution: Always carry one around with you, just in case!)
The likelihood of your agent getting back to you in a speedy manner is inversely proportional to your desire to get an answer to that question you asked him.
