    I Saw But Did I Really See?

    I was in the mood to watch television. Just thought I'd relax and see the strange things associated with watching as this show has been known to show the viewers. A variety of episodes were watched before this one came on about cyber chips under the skin. It showed that...

    but I need to wake them up to take their vital signs and check the blood sugar level which I subsequently treated for a hypo. Big guy, robust arms and mean looking face. "Oh no I bet this one will have an attitude" I thought. I suddenly felt really small and timid, I didn't want...
