It's in the Blood

It was time for T and his wife's twice-yearly urine and blood-profiling.

The hypochondriac in him had felt some uneasiness in his liver.

So off they went to Pathlab where they presented their pre-paid vouchers, plus urine (self-administered) and blood (lady-assisted) samples.

On the drive home after a mamak breakfast:

Wife: (ultra-sweetly).... Baaaang....

T: (just as sweetly).... Yes, Yaaang....

Wife: Could it be possible........

T: Yaa....?

Wife: that you could have .......

T: Naaawh..... you of all people should know thaaat

Wife: umm... Baang... know what?

T: I don't have ........ a secret bank account? hahahahahah!

Wife: Well at least you're jovial .... even after the run-in with so-and-so ........

T: So what do you think I could have, Yaang?

Wife: ummm ..... high blood pressure?

T: Naaawh.... I was 110/70 the last time the doctor measured

Wife: Isn't that high for you? When you were younger you were always on the low side? The doctor always thought you were anaemic.

T: That's right. Why the sudden interest? I think I'm relatively healthier and fitter now than I've ever been.

Wife: Well....... I want you to NOT take your eyes off the road... but to just peek, OK?

T: Hmmm.... you naughty old lady....

Wife: Eeeessshh you dirty old man... it's the PLASTER lah ......the plaster that lady put on your vein.......... is drenched with blood .......and so is your sleeve............just peek, just peek!!!








T: Yaaang, my arm is numb ..... (shaking his arm)

Wife: Take a look at mine (rolling her sleeve), there's only a dot of blood




T: Yeah lah, I think it's my liver .... something's wrong...

Wife: And your smile is crooked....

T: I'm not smiling.........

Wife: You're having a stroke then

T: (parking outside the house) I may have high blood..... and my blood's not clotting.... I need a LOVING stroke....

Wife: Quick let's get inside....

T: You serious?

Wife: Yes! I need to take a picture of your plaster before it drops off by itself... since it's so wet .......... for my blog lah

T: Owh...







Got a diagnosis?
