Really? REALLY?!

I dutifully went to my yearly exam today.

"I'm fine. How have you been, Dr?"

"Yes, everything is good."

"I know. I need to make more time for exercise."

"I'm feeling fine. Thanks for asking."

Until.

Until I gathered up the paperwork to check myself out at the desk.

Did you know that medical codes group exams of this nature by age?

I did not.

My new "code group" is a twenty-two year span. And I ain't talking ages 20-42, either.

Oh no. Now, I'm in the ages 42-64 group.

For cryin' out loud, my MOTHER just left that age group. As I entered it.

That is NOT right.

Ugh. "Fine" is NOT how I'm feeling right now.

AWESOME!!! You posted that note at 12:12. <3

I am totally not going to quote the Italian Job here. I'm not.. I'm going with the version of fine that means ... yummy.

And -- You ARE fine.
You are fine inside and out.

It's just a number.
You are going to refuse to be a stereotype and a statistic!!

Why??

Because *YOU* ARE *FIIIINE*
and you're my friend.
We'll fight the numbers together!!!

We are in the same boat...errr, I mean group!

It is definitely a dose of reality! :)

But..hey..it is ONLY a number...nothing more nothing less!

(At least that is what I keep telling myself!)
