Today, I have the day off from babysitting, as I have two appointments: one with the podiatrist and one with the travel agent. More about them tomorrow.
Some odd news recently struck me as being utterly bizarre:
- People with blood types A, B, and AB are at higher risk for a heart attack than those with O blood type. I am A+. Any cause for alarm?
- Babies who snore will have behavioral problems, such as aggressiveness and hyperactivity, when they grow up.
Both stories made it seem that individuals with those traits are doomed, no matter what they do. Has scientific research ever been disproven? You bet! In a couple of years, some other scientist will find a reason to debunk these conclusions.
Meanwhile, I’ll diet and exercise to compensate for my blood type. And, I am happy to report that my grandson has never snored during these past two years of watching him nap in my home.
P.S. Two year old Rylan has learned a little Spanish from the kids book and TV show, “Dora, the Explorer.” A foreign guest asked him, “How do you say ‘open’ in Spanish?” Rylan replied, “Abre.”
