Okay, I had the last medical test today and I donâ€™t have the official results but things are looking pretty good. In fact, Iâ€™ve been told unofficially to cut out the caffeine, up my intake of Vitamin E, and burn my bra. Wa-hoo!
I knew something was up when, about three times in a row, I accidentally got a yucky diet soda I wouldnâ€™t take a second sip of instead of my very favorite sweet tea from the drive-through at Dannyâ€™s. I drove back to work griping, â€œOkay, okay, Iâ€™ll drink something else,â€ and then back at the office, all the Cokes were gone in the machine and I got stuck with a Caffeine-free Sprite. Why have I been hearing in my head for the past two weeks to ditch the soda? Aw…the Grape Fanta, too?
Ah, and then I remember Will at the Unity Church back on 5 March when he was channeling from the Great Hall of Records and looking up at me from the healing table and saying, â€œTheyâ€™re telling me to tell you to lay off the caffeine!â€ I did, for months, but with several late nights in September and Shannonâ€™s Vanilla Coke sitting there, tempting me in the kitchen like a bad boy beckoning, Iâ€™d gotten back into the habit to stay awake on early mornings. But okay, I get the message!
I wonder if I can have chocolate, and the moment I wonder, I remember Will adding, â€œBut you can have chocolate.â€ I guess he was answering my question months before I asked it.
Still waiting for the official results but…well, at the moment, Iâ€™m feeling rather relaxed, relieved, and as I pop off my bra…unrestrained.
