has been putting off getting blood tests
for diabetes care matters
for nearly 2 months
but could really put it off no longer
and 's doctor's office informed that would be the one who would have to make the appointment with the lab
altho the lab is literally just down the road from
and only 15 minutes away
was scared poopless to go
labs are where covid lives
and due to the damage an allergy to birdies
does not have the bestest lungs
(they are only 85% at what completely healthy ones should be)
covid is actively looking for to cause harm
made appointment for 9:00 am saturday morning
had gloves and mask
and wandered off to the lab
had been to the lab many a time
but it was entirely different this time
the lab shares the building with a bank
a guard was outside
and the guard asked "bank or lab?"
said "ummmm - "
"NO!" barked the guard "you going to the bank or the lab?"
answered " has appointment at the lab"
the guard muttered "don't know who the fuck is...and what the ffuck is this 3rd person crap - but the lab is upstairs - thru THAT door"
was shown door was not used to using and took the stairs up to the lab
because did not want the risk of being cornered in the tiny elevator
the lab never had it's door open before
but it was propped open
all the chairs were still there - but most were piled up.
only a few chairs were in place
and spaced over 6 feet apart
markers - over 6 feet apart - were on the floor
the window to check in was gone - it was a wall
the hallway to the blood letting rooms and restroom was now behind a closed door
checked in at a kiosk
and stood in a corner
right at 's scheduled appointment the door opened and they called "?"
before was allowed back to the blood letting area was told
"have to take 's temperature"
shrugged and began removing pants in order for temperature
but before could undo belt the tech held a thingy to 's forehead and announced "98.4"
assumed that meant done so say "BING!"
and was shown to the blood letting room - #1 - and that had been redone as well
all the computer stuff at the front window was now there
was in mask and glove
blood letter was in mask and gloves
the blood letter put the leeches on and took 's blood
got a lovely bandage
and rushed back home
the entire trip took
from home to back home
just 45 minutes
suspects shall survive another day!
and the crowd goes DAMN!
