The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section -

Joyce: Is ev­ery­thing OK, Kenyon?

Kenyon: I think so, mostly. I just got a phys­i­cal and here are the re­sults. Would you take a look?

Joyce: Red blood cell count good, white blood cells good, choles­terol lev­els a bit shaky. Oh, you have high blood pres­sure.

Kenyon: Would that have to do with my diet? Joyce: You prob­a­bly eat too much fat and salt. Kenyon: Could it be a con­gen­i­tal prob­lem? Joyce: Could be. Do you have a fam­ily his­tory of heart dis­ease?

Kenyon: My grand­fa­ther died of a heart at­tack and my un­cle just had triple by­pass surgery.

Joyce: Those are re­ally bad signs. You should watch what you eat.

Kenyon: Speak­ing of food, I’m hun­gry. How’s your cafe­te­ria here?

Ex­pla­na­tion: Con­gen­i­tal - a dis­ease or con­di­tion that ex­ists at or from birth
