The company I now work for has regular biometric screenings (physicals) as part of the health and wellness program they offer. Which means I had to fast yesterday morning (on a stupid Tuesday, no less!). Which was a problem for several reasons:
1. I work out in the mornings. Not eating anything after a 4.4-mile run? Not super ideal.
2. Not letting Amy have breakfast? Bad idea.
3. Not letting Amy have coffee? Hide your children and don’t make any sudden movements or I will TAKE YOU DOWN.
The above was written this morning after having coffee, so it’s not just me overdramatizing. Cold hard facts, folks.
Anyway, turns out you CAN have black coffee if you so choose before such things. Just no sugar or creamer. Which would have been nice to know at any point other than as I was waiting to have my name called. Jerks.
We’re not going to talk about it.
So I get my blood drawn and don’t think twice about it because I’ve had it drawn a few times as of late and it really doesn’t bother me one bit as long as the actual needle isn’t within my direct vision.
The nurse and I are giggling and gossiping and just having a great time. Then my awkward nature shines through:
Nurse: Sorry, these band-aids they gave us are just awful.
Me: It’s ok. I have Disney princess ones in my purse if I need a better one later.
Nurse: Awww… you must have little ones at home. How old are they?
Me: No. They’re for me. I don’t have kids.
Nurse: Well… that’s fun.
I really don’t understand why that’s so weird. However, it’s not like I had time to dwell on it because as soon as she slapped the band-aid on me (which I did, in fact, switch out later for Disney princess), I was out the door running towards the closest source of caffeine I could find. Priorities.
On a related note, my weight has somehow managed to keep balanced as I continue to eat and drink things of an indulgent nature during this whole “dating” process I’ve been going through. We’re not going to question it so much, just appreciate it, breathe a sigh of relief, and move on with our day.
Especially since last night we went for BBQ because it was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.
Yeah. I know. I like his style, too.
Anyway, enjoy the hump day, kids. The weekend will be here before you know it.
