The CIA Told Me to Smile

So there I was, demonstrating against having my phone records snatched, when some guy from the CIA with a PhD and a white coat carted me off for a little “VNG.” Going for a Spin
Suffice to say that I was worthless for the next 36 hours.

You tell me what you think “VNG” stands for.

      The guy in the cell next to me said that he’d rather have his fingernails pulled out, but I think he was just trying to set my expectations.

      Nice guess, but, no. Those goggles are the latest in torture eyewear.

      Yes, I believe Donald Sutherland was in the cell next to mine.

      Tests are leading to a result, one that I’m not going to be happy with as it will significantly affect my diet, including the consumption of salt, caffeine (coffee and chocolate), and alcohol. I am currently a wheat-free person, so I ask: “Is life still worth living?” :o)))

      I hope to get a reprieve from this life sentence—perhaps low sodium diet only? But that won’t be decided until mid-July when I see the ENT, and he interprets all of the results.

        I’m trying desperately to find comforting words but…no chocolate?!? Too, too cruel! Just make sure you’re wearing your fiercest hard stare when you see the ENT – frighten him out of it! And meantime you have a full month to stuff down as much of the stuff as you can…

      I was smiling because I had entered a dream world where this highly specialized form of torture was going to be free instead of putting me in debt for the rest of my natural life.

    Oh dear, I am not sure what is all about…and what for and if it is even legal (well CIA has been doing some weird business in the country I live in lately, so everything may be possible).

    • Jilanne Hoffmann says:

      Eva, Yes, everything is possible; however, this post is my weak attempt to joke about a problem I’m having with vertigo. The testing resembles torture, but the people administering the torture are very nice and have my best interests at heart—-unlike the CIA.
