This is the snippet of the conversation that happened couple of hours ago today; it’s like people from two worlds having a conversation. OK now to the topic; I had to meet up with the doc as I was getting myself tested for blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure etc. as part of my health check routine for this year. [Pardon me for the informal language used.]
The doctor reading the report says that my glucose level is low, but not to worry I said OK, then she says your blood pressure is normal, but the systolic one is little higher but not to worry, I said OK. Then the doctor says your good cholesterol is higher than the normal but it is OK, I say OK. I quickly interrupted her, I see there are just 8-9 items in your list of checks and already 4 are out of the normal and you say not to worry...is this to make me feel better or is there is a bug with the machine generating report? What bug? The doc looks at me with a serious look...no…no I mean anything wrong with the machine? Nope she says and goes on….and then starts explaining her reasons. Did you eat food properly? Asks the doc and I said i had my breakfast but yet to take lunch. OK that's the reason the glucose is low, clarifies the doc. Then the doc says the good cholesterol when high is really good as it will be secreted to the liver blah blah blah... I said, what does that mean, the doc said it means it is good unlike the bad cholesterol. I was like that’s easy explanation hmmm waiting to hear more…but the doc kept quiet that the explanation she gave was enough. I asked her for further explanation to the cholesterol stuff, she said it simply means you will not get heart attack for a while. I thank her for the good news, but realized she kind off answered my question but not really. Then the doctor asked about my eating habits and about my exercise, I said i do not have the bandwidth to take care of them properly...with eyebrows up she asks...what do you mean by that? I am like there is no time for that stuff because I am busy and stuff…she looked again and asked nope the other word…you used some “bandwidth” blah blah.. What’s that? , I said we (IT) say that when you do not have enough room to do things…we call it bandwidth in our (IT) terminology. She did not seemed to be convinced and felt I was telling something that did not make sense….kindoff sensed that from her face. I then gave her examples where exactly we use and the terminology…she was like OK…hmmm whatever!
