Yesterday I learned that my carotid arteries might be too narrow. I never even knew I had them, or where they are (my neck), or that they could be too narrow, so naturally I was surprised by the news. Afraid to find out too much before next week's ultrasound of my carotids, I refuse to Google this condition, but it put me in touch with the fact that it's just one more effed-up body part, thanks to the glorious aging process. Instead of dwelling on the negative, I will list the body parts I have that have never given me any trouble and be thankful for those. I may even take them all out to dinner someplace nice.
