Of Fainting Goats and Wii Fits

avatarthumbnail.jpgIt’s barely been noticeable here, where only a day and a half has passed since the last post, but I found myself out of pocket as they say since Saturday night.

The Wii Fit has been a boon is as much as it has helped me lose 10 pounds over the past month and also see noticeable improvement in my aerobic capacity, which comes in handy when showing 3-story townhouses in 113 degree heat.

Sadly, the Wii Fit has not turned me into a runner. In fact, Saturday’s “fitness tip” all but told me not to do what I was about to do. Paraphrasing …

“Stress and anxiety are major factors for your health. When you find yourself all stressed, try a balance game and have fun while you exercise.

Remember, it’s okay to relax sometimes …”

Much as I ignore the people at McDonald’s offering me a McCafe when I’m ordering the kids’ chicken nuggets, I ignored the suggestion of a relaxing ski run in favor of the Island Run … essentially jogging in place.

Video of what took place mercifully doesn’t exist but this re-creation should suffice.

After five consultations, four blood draws, three ultrasounds, two shots injected into the stomach and a nuclear stress test (in a pear tree) all was reported as normal. Which in itself is a major victory over the FDA and the food pyramid.

Apparently, a person can just pass out (especially if their blood pressure’s been through the roof thanks to the commission-based nature of the business, stupid debates on the real estate blogs about asinine topics and three beagles who refuse to respect my authority.)

What this portends for this endeavor is … well, nothing, except it’s Monday’s evening and I wanted to write a post to thank at least three of the eight nurses and nurses assistants that I saw.

And also to tell anyone who works in the respiratory department that when a patient orders a CPAP, it needs to arrive before, say, 3:15 a.m. Unless your patient also happens to be a vampire.

Though you probably never knew I was gone, I’m glad to be back.

    Good to hear our stallion of an agent is alive & kickin’!! On a related sidenote, how’s the goat doing?

    Tip: Do the cleanse JD… and see a naturopath if you’re brave enough

    So glad you’ve been thoroughly inspected and can now return to your regularly scheduled programming. I was going to feel *really* bad taunting you about the suckage that is ASU in your weakened condition. I mean, I was going to do it anyway, but I’d have felt bad…

    Glad you’re okay, my friend. 🙂

    OK man, you scared the shit outta me. Glad you’re OK. Next time you’re on the east side, we’ll grab a double-double at In-n-Out to celebrate. 😉
