I have an appointment for a nuclear stress test on Friday.
I asked the stress test appointment taker why I couldn't eat something before the test. "It’s because of the test," she said.
"I know, but why do they require me to fast before the test?"
"It’s the test preparation."
"I know, but why?"
"Because it’s part of the test preparation."
"I'm afraid you’re not answering my question. WHY is it part of the test preparation?"
"Because you’re getting an injection. When people get injections, they can’t eat."
This must be the same woman who told me there are two kinds of diabetes, the high blood sugar kind and the low blood sugar kind.
