Fair Day!

It's Fair Day, the day when Brown Elementary is closed and the teachers and students go to the state fair. It's also Columbus Day, widely regarded as Unfair Day by those with revisionist or pro-indigenous tendencies.

I, however, spent my morning getting a stress echo and a chest X-ray. They put a contrast dye in my blood. The dye is made from a lipid base and chlorofluorocarbons. That doesn't sound safe. I'd never done a stress test before. They make that treadmill go fast, and elevate it quite high. I was running at the end of eight minutes, when I stopped, pretty damn fatigued. I think the test was over in any case, though.

I have no interest whatsoever in fairs, anyhow.
