I had a Dr appointment today and as usual, I was early. So, the only magazine that wasn’t a ladies magazine or some left wing trash was “Boys’ Life.” Not sure I’ve looked at that since I was 12-13 year’s old. So, I flipped though it and was very surprised that I didn’t see wokeness or climate warming nonsense in it. So good for Boys’ Life. Bit of a surprise since the Boy Scouts in general have gone leftist.
So, getting my yearly physical for work and the nurse comes in and takes my blood pressure. Now, I am hard of hearing and the nurse has a Mexican accent so I don hear it very well but it sounded like she said “120 over 90” which I would have been thrilled with. (note: by accident I always wear a long sleeved shirt when I go to the Dr and have to pull my arm out of the shirt .)
Now, a bit later when the Dr comes in, she takes my BP again and I didn’t hear what she said. But wait !! Later still the nurse comes back in with a BP machine and takes my BP again. This time it’s 144/95 !!!!! It gets better when a few minutes later, they read my BP again and it is 140/90. I don’t know what a difference it makes but the last three readings were over my shirt sleeve.
