Mic Check a One Two a One Two

Is anybody like me that when they see one of these
they have to check their blood pressure?  Every time I'm in a drug store or super market and I see a blood pressure machine I have the sudden urge to take my left arm out of my coat and stick in it the cuff and get my Systolic over Diastolic.  Tonight on our way back from Whit's class we made our daily CVS stop and we both had the urge to check our blood pressure.  So we did and it turns out we are not going to die anytime soon. Wahoo!

Seriously! I LOVE THOSE THINGS! I miss Shopper's Drug Mart in Canada. You could consistently rely on them to have those things.

I never get that urge, because all I see when I look at it is GERMS. Also, DAILY trips to cvs? You are committed.
