“Write drunk; edit sober.” ~Ernest Hemingway
This joke is an oldie, but I giggle every time I read it.
Ladies, this has to be read, laughed at and passed on. There is not a
woman alive who won't crack up over this!
I was due for an appointment with the gynecologist later in the week.
Early one morning, I received a call from the doctor's office to tell
me that I had been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30 am . I had only
just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was already around
8:45am . The trip to his office took about 35 minutes, so 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 pajamas, wet
the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave myself a
quick wash in 'that area' to make sure I was at least presentable. I
threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped
in the car and raced to my a ppointment.
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 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 have made an extra effort this
morning, haven't we?'
I didn't respond.
After the appointment, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The
rest of the day was normal ... some shopping, cleaning, cooking.
After school when my 6-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.'
Never going back to that doctor.
I realized today I am OCD about the wrong things. I spent over an hour rearranging my Facebook photos in to what I consider to be the "appropriate" albums, but there are two hampers fulls of socks right next to me I didn't even touch. #FAIL
