This morning I had to have blood drawn for my yearly checkup following a 14 hour fast, not my favorite thing to do. Going without food that long is not too much of a big deal, until you actually tell me I can't eat. Then I want to nosh on everything in sight.
The blood-taking rules also forbid coffee, which is enough to send me into a catatonic state. My morning routine always includes a cup of coffee before I present myself to the world and the world is very happy that I do that. Saves a lot of wear and tear on other people.
The waiting room was pretty full when I got there and then when it seemed to be my turn -- with me clutching my script and insurance card in one hand to save time --the tech called in another man first. What the....? That phlebotomist had no idea how close he came to having an incident in his waiting room! Film at 11.
