BKITU: I don't do drugs. I drink in moderation. I don't philander. I pay all our bills on time. I save for the future. I don't gamble money we can't afford to lose.

I'm so sorry to hear that, I hope you get better.

Conversation with my doctor:

Doc: I'd like to talk to you about your cholesterol.
Me: What? I fence four nights a week, I swim at least two mornings a week, and I...
Doc: It's not quite what I mean. Your LDLs are good, only 87.
Me: That sounds high, actually, but ok... why are you concerned then?
Doc: Your HDL is pretty low. 47. It's not in the danger zone but I'd like to see it above 60 or so.
Me: Um... how do I do that?
Doc: Eat more fish.
Me: I'm allergic to fish. You're the one that ran the test.
Doc: Oh yeah, I forgot. And most of the Omega-3 supplements have at least some fish-derived oils... better safe than sorry.
Me: So I'm screwed?
Doc: Well... I don't normally recommend this, but do you drink alcohol?
Me: Remarkably little. A glass of wine on special occasions sometimes?
Doc: You need to think about starting. A glass of wine is good, red wine has other benefits too. But for this any alcohol will do. One drink a day minimum from now on.
Me: Seriously?
