At least I gave up crack …

My company has a Wellness Program for its employees. The way it works is you get a blood test, fill out a health questionnaire and then within about a week you get back a report on your health with specific actions you can take to improve it. In exchange for taking part in this program the company gives you a 10% discount on your health insurance premiums.

The blood tests were back in March. I filled out the form and checked the box for “pregnant” (which, helpfully, was also labeled “Currently” lest you confuse this designation with having ever been pregnant). Under the section about alcohol I checked the box for “moderate” which I think they defined as 2 to 3 drinks per week.

I meant IN GENERAL. I’m a moderate drinker, in general. Not, like, NOW.

I think you see where this is going …

I guess the good news is that I did not get a panicked call from a nurse or something. What I did get, included in my health evaluation and test results, was AN ENTIRE PAGE on the evils of drinking while pregnant.

  1. The only reason I have let you live is because you produce very cute grandchildren. Don’t show this article to anyone.
