Brad Pitt

There is nothing like visiting the gynecologist…nothing.  

Without getting into too much graphic detail, I just have to say the the instruments they use are nothing less than something from a horror film.

The first time I went for an exam  was when I was pregnant with my first baby.  I followed the doctors directions and changed out of my clothes, and laid down underneath that paper weight “blanket”.  
(Is that thing supposed to make you feel shielded?  I don’t know about that.)  and tried to imagine myself being somewhere else…the beach, the movies,..anything.  I rested my head back and gazed at the ceiling.  

Nothing shocked me more than when I saw Brad Pitt looking back at me from the poster.  I still don’t know quite how to feel about that..tacky?  Probably…did he pick the right guy?  Probably.

I was sent an email a few years back and still laugh at it every time I think about it.  I thought it would be a great way to laugh into this next very busy week!

 In Melbourne, Fl. one of the radio
stations paid money ($100-$500) for people
 to tell their most embarrassing stories.
This one netted the winner $300…..

 I was due later in the week for an appointment with the gynecologist when one morningI received a call from his office: I had been rescheduled for early that morning at 9:30am.  I had just packed everyone off to work and school and it was around 8:45 already.  The trip to his office usually took about 35 minutes so I didn’t have any time to spare. As most women do, I’m sure, I like to pay a little extra attention to hygiene when making such visits, but this time I wasn’t going to be able to make the full effort. So I rushed upstairs, threw off my dressing gown, wet the washcloth and gave myself a wash in “that area” in front of the sink, taking care to make sure that I was presentable. I threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my appointment.

 I was in the waiting room only a few minutes when he called me in. Knowing the procedure, as I am sure all women do, I hopped up on the table, looked over at the other side of the room and pretended I was in Hawaii or some other place a million miles away from here. I was a little surprised when he said: “My…we have taken a little extra effort this morning, haven’t we?”, but I didn’t respond. The appointment over, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day went normal, some shopping, cleaning and the evening meal, etc.,

 At 8:30 that evening my 14 year old daughter was getting ready for a school dance, when she called down from the bathroom, “Mom – where’s my washcloth?” I called back for her to get another from the cabinet. She called back, “No – I need the one that was here by the sink. It had all my glitter and sparkles in it.”
