Since the most exciting thing to do at work (besides checking the soda machine to see if the Diet Coke's have run out) is to check your blood pressure at the health check machine, I thought I would do a PSA about blood pressure.

For some strange reason since I have zero medical education, the terms systolic and diastolic have stuck in my head regarding blood pressure. I know nothing about what they mean. Must be time to google.

I won't bore you with the details, here's a good website for that. Basically, 120/80 is great, 130/85 normal, and 140+/90+ is hypertension.

We now return to our regularly scheduled inane drivel.
