My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Okay, this is NOT me.... I can't imagine having this happen! Oh wait, yes I can. That's what makes it funny. Oh boy....


A woman was due for an appointment with the gynecologist later in the week.

But early on Monday morning, she received a call from his office to tell her that her appointment had been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30AM.

She 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, she didn't have any time to spare. As most women do, she liked to make a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits, but for this appointment there just wasn't time. So, she rushed upstairs, threw off her pajamas, wet the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave herself a quick wash in "that area" to make sure she was at least presentable.

Then she threw the washcloth in the hamper, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to her appointment. She was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when she was called in. Knowing the procedure, she donned the paper robe, hopped up on the table, assumed the position when told to, and looked over at the other side of the room and pretended she was in Paris or some other place a million miles away.

She was a little surprised when the doctor said, "My, we've made an extra effort this morning, haven't we?" But didn't respond.

After the exam, she heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day was normal... some shopping, cleaning, cooking, etc.

After school when her six year old daughter was playing, she called out from the bathroom, "Mommy, where's my washcloth?" she told her to get another one from the cupboard.

Her daughter replied, "No, I need the one that was here by the sink, it had all my glitter and sparkles saved inside it!"
