There is not a woman alive today who won’t crack up over this!
I was due for an appointment with the gynaecologist later in the
week, but early on Monday morning, I received a call from his office to
tell me that my appointment had been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30AM.
I had just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was
already around 8:45 AM.
Since the trip to his office would take about 35 minutes, I didn’t have any time to spare. As most women do, I like to take a little extra effort over 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 pyjamas, wet the washcloth that was setting next to the sink, and gave myself a quick wash in “that area” to make sure I was at least presentable. I then threw the washcloth in the hamper, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my appointment.
I was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when I was called in.
Knowing the procedure, as I’m sure you do, I hopped up on to the table,
looked over at the other side of the room and pretended that I was in
Paris or some other place a million miles away. I was a little surprised when the doctor said, “My, we’ve made an extra effort this morning, haven’t we?” I didn’t respond.
After the examination, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day went as normal. After school when my six year old daughter was playing, she called out from
the bathroom, “Mommy, where’s my washcloth?” I told her to get another one from the cupboard. She replied, “No, I need the one that was here by the sink, it had all my
glitter and sparkles saved inside it.”
