First One to Get a Clogged Artery Wins!

Him: I got the results of my blood work from my physical today.

Me: Oh good, what do they say?

Him: Wow. My cholesterol is high. My triglycerides are too.

Me: How high? WOAH! I totally won that one. Mine aren't nearly that high!

Him: What did you get for Glucose? I got a 76.

Me: Ha! 72. I win again. What about Creatinine?

Him: What is that?

Me: Doesn't matter, fess up!

Him: I got a 1.0.

Me: Woo Hoo! I got a 0.9.

Him: But maybe we WANT that one to be high!

Me: Don't go making up rules because you are losing.

Him: Whatever. Potassium?

Me: 4.0.

Him: Me too. It's a tie.

Me: OK, I'll give you that one. But your cholesterol and stuff, we need to really do something about that.

Him: The letter here suggests "lifestyle changes." And I need to make a follow up appointment with the doctor.

Me: Sounds like a good plan.............Hey, can you finish off these cheezy scrambled eggs and buttered sourdough toast for dinner?


  1. Lifestyle change, huh? I'm glad it didn't read gender change- otherwise we wouldn't have anything to talk about after the next card party.

  2. HA! That is a funny conversation!! Sounds like me and dh....he had his "well check" yesterday and I had mine today. We compared notes on everything. At least I didn't GAIN any weight since my last visit. I didn't lose, but hey, at least I didn't GAIN! :)
