Well, I will be going back to work from tomorrow. My 6 days of leave away from the office due to my illness comes to an end. Today I had to go to the hospital for a follow up with my doctor. Yesterday I called up Lalpath Labs and arranged for them to come and take my blood so it can be tested. By around 1 pm they did come and get the blood for testing and I got the results by 4pm. I could tell that the results were good and that I wouldn’t have to worry but needed the doc to reassure me.
So I got dressed in the morning and my sister decided to join me; she wasn’t free initially but she then told me that the work she had scheduled was cancelled so she was accompanying me to the hospital. We did have to wait for a while and I did so, standing all the time. Once I saw the doc, I was a bit relieved and he told me to continue some medicine for a month and then come to see him. I opted to buy the medicine from a medical store nearby rather than wait in the queue at the hospital’s pharmacy for another 30 minutes.
I booked an Uber and my sister got down in between to run some errands and I came home to have a late lunch with my parents and then laid down on my bed, cranked up the ac and watched some Big Bang Theory. By evening I had some light snacks and tea. I bought poori masala for my parents and I had a masala dosa for dinner with a vada each. Now I will relax with some tv before going to bed.
BIKINI-CLAD LADIES NEED POLICE PROTECTION
Until this law (KRS 436.140) was recently repealed, bikini-wearing women weighing between 90-199 pounds could not walk down a Kentucky highway without an officer or other professional guarding them. The weight restrictions seem a bit odd, but we’re sure lawmakers’ intentions were in the right place and focused on the women’s protection.
KEEP YOUR ICE CREAM CONES IN YOUR POCKET
Before automobiles changed the way we traveled, most of our ancestors got around on horseback. Along the way, some would-be travelers would spot someone else’s horse, and try to lure it away by putting an empty ice cream cone in their back pocket. True story. Because of that, a law was written – one that still applies today – that forbids you to carry an ice cream cone in your pocket.
YOU SHAN’T STINK
Ok, this is a law everyone should agree with. All Kentucky citizens are required to shower at least once per year. While today’s dermatologists say a shower every other day is best for your skin, many people make it part of their daily routine, easily meeting the annual requirement.
THREE TIMES IS THE LIMIT ON MARRIAGES
No word on why anyone would even consider doing so, but it’s against the law for a woman to marry the same man more than three times. One may think the relationship would be punishment enough.
YOU’RE SOBER UNLESS YOU CAN’T STAND UP
That’s right, no matter how much you’ve had to drink, an old law says you’re still considered to be sober unless you cannot stand up. This law is even weirder when you consider Kentucky’s current drinking and driving laws.
