i got a handful of suprises today and most of them are happy ones.
i had to get some bloodwork done — mostly regarding my lipid profile, creatinine and some other stuff. those tests are expensive! i didn’t expect them to go up to php 2.4k! that is my first surprise for the day. nasty huh? i didn’t have enough with me so i had to walk back to the house, get enough money and walk to the hospital again. 🙁 the good side was most of results were within the lower half of the normal range. 🙂 i’m very happy about that one.
the next surprise came with an incessant ringing of the doorbell. it was al’s brother-in-law bringing a surprise from al. al is a guy i got to know over at pinoy roadies. i haven’t actually met him in person. he lives in america and he appears really kwela (fun) judging by his posts at pinoy roadies (and he has plenty of posts 😯 ). he loves biking. anyway, al sent over a package containing a pair of gel-padded cycling gloves by cannondale. wow! 😯 sweet! a heap of thanks to al. i owe you a kiss dude.
the next pleasant surprise was my girlfriend came home early and she got us a loaf of rye bread. we’re big bread eaters — she and i — and we often would buy french or dark bread or sour dough and have that with our meals. robin would sometimes ask us, “why do you like bread so much?” he’s a rice eater so he doesn’t get it unless we “dress up” a slice of bread and make it look like pizza. 😉
all in all, it has been a great day. thank you guys for making it one!
