John Y’s Musings from the Middle: Blood Tests

Can’t win them all.

Last physical blood tests were “good” but with a few “slight irregularities.”

While waiting for explanation my mind raced. It was “slightly elevated cholesterol and glucose. That’s all.”

Me:”Ok . Good.”

And I added “I figured the “slight irregularity” may have been traces of Tiger Blood.”

Nurse:”Ha! No traces of Tiger Blood. Did you eat anything sweet just before the test?”

Me:”Yes. An ice cream cone.”

Nurse:”That explains glucose. If I ever worry that I need to test for Tiger Blood I’ll let you know.”

Me:”I read once that tigers like ice cream.”

Nurse: “Uh-huh. You can go now.”

Personally, I don’t even think she tested for Tiger Blood.
