Sounds like the shoe may fit. It seems I'm racking up several "checkups". Thyroid, gall bladder, let's see what else? Oh, yeah, a tooth capped, teeth cleaned. New glasses, an allergy test and whenever I can muster up the nerve, I need to have a colon cancer checkup. Not that I have symptoms, but it runs in my family.
The last 2 days I was feeling so horrible and the thought occurred to me that dying can't be too pleasant. I think I'm going to put in an order to the Lord for something short and sweet. Nothing violent, just "Adios, amigos".
