MY KIDNEY FUNCTION is UP and my blood pressure is DOWN. These are good things. It wasn't too long ago that I didn't even know what a nephrologist was, and now I have one!
Our rainfall frequency is UP and the heat index is DOWN. These are good things. Typically, when the weather prediction is for 30% chance of rain, we don't see any. But lately, that 1/3 prospect has been delivering at least some precipitation.
The Dodgers are UP with a 7.5 game lead in the NL West and the Yankees are DOWN, in fourth place in the AL East. These are good things. Them Bums have produced a phenom in Yasiel Puig and the Yankees have produced a bum (lower case b) in Alex Rodriguez.
My blogging enjoyment level is UP since MyBloggers is working again, but my expectations are DOWN when it comes to this site's dependability. So there is good & bad in everything. It sure would have been nice for them (???) to warn us re the down time and thank us for our suffering patience. I left two phone messages for them (before they stopped even accepting messages) and told them Elvis, I mean Eddie, had left the building, for all the good that'll do.
There are UPS & DOWNS, I suppose Newton once said. An apple fell out of a tree and conked him on the head. He tossed it up in the air and it came back down. "There are ups & downs... I think I'll call it gravity."
