The Labtest Contest is back! And the grand prize has never been better- guess closest to my t-cell count and win a signed copy of Sean Strub's incredible new book, Body Counts! The rules are posted below... be sure to follow them and good luck!

But before we get to the rules, I need to inform you of a slight change. For the first time ever, I will be competing in the contest. The prize is just that good. Sure, I already have my own copy of Body Counts, which I adore, but it isn't signed.  Think of it as an extra challenge, or an AIDS-y version of Win Ben Stein's Money...
labteststrubtest.jpgThe competition will undoubtedly be stiff. And I'm not guaranteed a win by any means. In fact, my own doctor, Greg, is venturing a guess for the first time, too.  To make sure my guess and my doctor's are seen, I'm going to dramatically increase the font size.

Shawn's Guess: 422
Shawn's Doctor's Guess: 670

(I went with a lowball guess to balance out my doctor's high one. Been feeling great and haven't been sick in a while.)
