my last "original" sad...

“Write drunk; edit sober.” ~Ernest Hemingway

This joke is an oldie, but I giggle every time I read it.

The Washcloth

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
