All this cause and effect between eating too much and moving too little was discussed over my cell phone while I sat in the clinic’s parking lot and they had him kidnapped inside where they drew his blood and felt him up for lumps and bumps. Pandemic rules of engagement. After $215 worth of examination that included two canine flu shots, a fecal exam looking for worms of various descriptions they didn’t find and a CBC blood chemistry test and they finally brought him back out to car. Can you believe it, they charged $3.95 to throw out the inch long sample of poop after playing with it under a microscope. I should have asked for it back and used the $3.95 down the street at Starbucks.
I’m just past the half way point in the book and already I’m flabbergasted that our president bad-mouths the CDC and WHO and wants to defund them. The kind of work they do to contain viruses around the world blows my mind. Dangerous work done by super-smart and highly educated people, I might add. The most dangerous thing Trump has ever done is stick his penis where it doesn’t belong without wearing a condom. I’m sorry, I should compartmentalize my politics and not let them contaminate my book review.
