11/22 - Can you fix my printer's triglycerides?
Tuesday, November 22, 2005
I saw something pretty startling yesterday. I was working on some
computers in the lab and talking to the lab folks. There was a new
employee being trained by the person I was talking with. The new
employee had her rubber gloves on, and picked up a vial of blood
from one of the machines. While looking at it she said, “Ewww,
what’s that?” and held the vial up. The trainer said, “Oh, we call
that a burger and cheese fries.” The machine had separated the
blood into blood(?) at the bottom, and what appeared to be
yellowish solidified bacon fat on the top. This stuff was called
the triglycerides. She went on to explain that this person
probably had a very fatty meal within the last 48 hours.
“Normally,” she said, “it’s a clear or a slightly cloudy yellowish
color. This stuff is what clogs your arteries.” She told us that
if we were going to have any blood work done, not to eat fatty
foods for at least 2 days before.
I didn’t wait. Today while traveling to Manti to fix a printer
that went bad, I stopped at Wendy’s for lunch. I had a single, a
side salad and water. (I stopped drinking pop in June. I dunno if
that’s made any kind of difference, but I guess it won’t hurt.)
Anyway, this Thanksgiving, take one dollop less of gravy ‘eh?
For those of you who get this as email...
