Doctor’s Orders

October 27, 2011

Went to the doctor this morning for a checkup. I’m at that age, you know? The age when guys need to have a doctor and need to get all of our parts checked regularly because things start to break about now.

Well, I’m generally in excellent shape … BUT … turns out that my cholesterol is a bit high, likely due to genetics. As you can see below, one of the new doctor’s recommendations is 1-2 glasses of alcohol per day. Hehehehehe.

And I have to say … considering that I tend to have about five alcoholic drinks per year and usually only drink rum and Coke, this will not be an easy directive to follow.

      I dunno. I generally can’t stand wine. I’m a pariah up here in wine country. Never found one that I enjoy, red or white.
