Sorry, I am fine.

I got a fright last week when I was told my sugar level looks high. I was immediately asked to undergo a test which required drawing blood every half an hour. After 8 samples, they thought it was enough and mercifully let me go.

I walloped in self pity thinking of my recently acquired sweet tooth. All those chocolates in the fridge... the pack of chocolate cream covered biscuits... that chocolate cake I just baked and the boxes of Pringles sitting on top of the fridge, waiting to be devoured... and what about the huge packets of potato smiles I stock up my fridge with... sigh! good bye food, good bye life...

And then the results came. Hubby looked at me. I looked at the sheet.

And my reaction, "Yippee! Yippee! Negative! No worries! Hakuna Matata!"

And my cruel hubby's reaction, "Ah! What a waste of money!"

Now I am not sure whether I should apologize for testing negative or for wasting money on testing! Bah!

anarmel: Didn't quite get what you said. Also checked your blog. I am sorry I don't know Spanish.

Anita: Not worth the trouble.

tricorn: You are mistaking folly for glory! My cheap local bag is good enough!

ad astra per aspera: We should get together someday for karaoke-ing Hakuna Matata, with lots of chocolate in between!

angel: Love them or hate them, I guess we need them!

Rahul: Husband smiles with me. And without me. The fridge is loaded and it looks good.

Pallavi: He can't get away by being 'typical' every time! You guys save him when I explode!

santanu: Pearl necklace? For whom? Now I got to catch his neck! He knows very well I don't like pearl necklaces!!

Since this blog comment page seems to have become a discussion forum, I'll just add here:
The Pearl necklace was a slip. I think it was a Diamond Pendant :)

santanu: Ah! That sounds more like it! Though I will have a skip a whole lot of medical tests before being able to afford any miserable diamond. (God forbid, if any of the skipped test were meant to be for some fatal illness, I will pop off before wearing any diamonds and it will probably be another wife in husband's life who will don the rocks!)
