Just one of those days
Today I thought I had a doctor’s appointment at 11:30AM. I laid down around10:30 to kill some time and when I next looked at the clock, it said 11:15. Oops. I had a thirty minute drive to Forestville where the doc was, so I jumped in the car and hurried over there, hoping the doc would be late for the appointment.
Rush was for not
When I walked in the lady said she didn’t expect to see me today. What? Turns out my appointment is for tomorrow so the rush was for not.
Looking for better gloves
I needed some more nitrile gloves for my hands as they are still drying out and cracking so I drove over to Harbor Freight where I thought they might have more of a selection and maybe some xxlarges, but they didn’t. I was able to get a couple boxes of xlarges which will do and some other tools too.
Visit with Joe
So now I had some time so I drove over to my friend Joe’s house for a visit. He’s always working on some projects so we look at them and shoot the bull a lot.
Joe has been drinking a Chlorophyll extract so I asked him about it as I was thinking I could use some to improve my gut flora.
So I got the name of it and he offered to make me a drink, so I said yes, unfortunately.
I did get some work done on the van’s project
After about an hour I left for home and immediately got my tools together and started to work on the van’s added cooling system for the engine as I needed to get the old hose off so I would knew how much I needed to buy to get a longer hose for the job.
Of course the van’s belly pan was getting in the way and making things difficult, so I finally did what I needed to do and removed it, about fifteen minutes.
With the belly pan off
Once that is done I can get to things and wrenches are easier to turn. When I took the heater hose off fluid started dripping all over the place so I had to watch it. I finally went in the house and got an old towel to help with the problem.
I tried to keep the new hose connection short, but that caused it to kink. I had to make it longer which was ok as there was room for it.
That’s all I wanted to do today on that, so now I can buy the extra heater hose I need to continue hooking this thing up.
Unfortunately, I got corned
It wasn’t long after that when I realized I’d been hit with corn stuff and my legs where really starting to itch, so what did I eat today?
Only the chlorophyll drink at Joe’s house. Darn I didn’t even think to look at the ingredients.
Checked things out online
So I went on line and looked up the ingredients. The listed ingredients were a bit on the vague side. There was one questionable item, but worse then that, there was a lot of stuff missing. I finally realized they didn’t list a lot of stuff, like what did they use to extract the chlorophyll from the plants? No listing. I know from experience that they likely used corn alcohol as it works good for that as it is a lot cheaper than most other things that can be used.
I called Joe and informed him that his product wasn’t what it was supposed to be and was indeed a GMO product and he should find something better. Of course he said he was sorry, but I said it wasn’t his fault it was mine, not his. I’m the one responsible for what I put into my body.
First time in about a month
This is the first time in about a month that I’ve gotten hit with corn which means my body rashes have changed a bit, so I was a bit curious as to how this was going to hit me and for how long, which I will find out as in the past this stuff would hit me hard for about twelve hours, so I’ll see.
I think I need to learn my lesson
Almost every time I try to add something which I think might help me out, I get bombed so maybe I need to learn my lesson and not try new things out without being much more cautious. But in the end, the only way to test a product is to eat it and suffer if I guessed wrong. Not a good method, but that’s the only way I can know for sure if a product is corned, eat it and see.
So tomorrow I will make my Doctor’s appointment again and try not to be late.
That was my day.
That’s too bad about the corn stuff. It must be really tough keeping track of everything you eat, especially when offered ‘new’ stuff.
