Blood Pressure versus Coffee

I have high Blood Pressure!

It’s just a fact of life for me.

Even if I were able to isolate myself from the growing number of idiots who dominate the news networks, and even if the government lowered my taxes and started making all of the free-loaders in our country get jobs and pay their own way, I would still be one of those people with High Blood Pressure.

So, I have dutifully taken my prescribed pills each day so that my whole body gets pulled down into a slower pace.

And that’s OK, too.

But, I do cheat.

Every morning I drink Coffee. I mean I drink real coffee, not some chemically altered concoction they call decaffeinated.

Sure, I know I’m not supposed to do things that will raise my blood pressure, but I am addicted to Coffee. And, I have found that if I take my required dosage of meds, and then drink my morning coffee, my brain can absorb and react to what I see on the news for a couple of hours before my meds pull me down again.

This works for me; taking my meds to protect myself from the side effects of high blood pressure, and then once I am out and about, letting my meds kick in and  level my attitude out, a bit.

My Doctors tell me that; “at your age, you need to be reasonable about how much Coffee you drink”, so I do.

I’m down to only one pot of Coffee, each morning!

And for my next Trick …….. just Bring it ON!

 

Morning Sun,

shining in my right eye.

Tears running down my cheek as I try

to start my PC, half-blind.

I need my Coffee, so I take a sip.

I miss my mouth!

So Hot Coffee’s running down my favorite T-shirt.

Jumping up, I drop my PC onto the rug.

All of this happens in a flash of time.

I’m no Dummy!

I decide to just stand here,

stained shirt, burning skin, tears in my eyes,

and wait on life’s comedian, Fate!

Surely, there’s something else the evil bastard can throw at me,

before I get on with my day?

Bring it ON!
