Hard living is catching up to me! Years of fun and frolic, living like a Hobbit, and not caring have caught me on my doorstep. I decided to go get my first checkup in about twenty years. I mean when you are immortal who needs blood tests and Doctors! Well needless to say my cholesterol is a little high. The real problem though is my Triglycerides. My results sheet had a chart on it for low, moderate,  and severe risk. The number for severe risk was 500. My number was 546!  I  told my wife “Hey, when I do something I like to do my best!” I also said “Wow that’s the highest grade I ever got on a test.” I guess my years of sucking the marrow from life were well done, now I have to be an adult and eat right. Boo! Well, it’s not the end of the world, I mean there is medicine and it’s fixable, so no sweat, but boy I’m gonna miss my Carbs. and fried anything. Ice cream and alcohol, my dear friends, we must keep our relationship to a minimum, if we want to spend any time together. We do, oh yes we do! I guess living well now means salads, and fat-free everything. Does this mean I have to drink those low Carb. beers also? It seems it’s time to channel my inner rabbit or bird when it comes time to eating, lots of fruits and greens. I just want to say live it up, but watch how you do it, read labels, and cut the fat and sugars. Wow as I type this, it sounds so depressing, but I guess being dead might be more so! I don’t worry though (the immortal me returning) I will be writing and living for a looooong time, so keep reading.
