Some of you have seen this picture before,
I am reposting it as a reminder not to stress over things,
and to remember what is funny in our lives.
One of my favorite things is to make others laugh,
I am usually pretty good at this, not today.
So please see the silliness in this somewhat personal story..
I had some tests done today as I have been having some stomach problems,
nothing serious, just having some tests.
So I get my gown on which apparently was on backwards,
how is a big girl like me going to get my short arms around to tie from behind,
so my day started with a look of OMG from the technican.
I wish she could have seen the look on her face it was priceless.
she almost took a step back. I chuckled inside.
So now she gets me on the table, asks me some questions,
No I am not pregnant I say, Are you sure?
I felt like saying no, I am quessing,
but I did not, I said I absolutely am not.
Well when was the last time she says,
Now I am thinking to myself, well let me just get out my daytimer and I will check this out.
all the while thinking am I supposed to remember this, then thinking well if I don't then it was not the most
memorable, ...some of the medications I am on actually decrease my interest in this.....
so I say, I think 2007, now would you not have laughed at that I ask you?
no I got read the riot act, they have to know for sure, well I about had to sign my life away,
I told her I had never had children, had testing, not possible, blah, blah, blah,
Well when is the last time you had intercourse? she asks.
So I pull a number out of my hat, lets say last Thursday.
Okay well then you should be fine.
So I think to myself,
I wonder what she would have said if I said any other day of the week.
I was just shaking my head in my mind as I signed that form...
now that give me a package that makes you feel like you have just swallowed air pockets,
Are you comfortable, make sure you don't belch she says.
I open my mouth to say I am fine and yes you guessed it,
I belched as I replied I am fine....not on purpose, oh no no.
Piercing eyes of daggars burnt through my skin,
I swear I could feel it.
So now I go from side to side, lay on my stomach, roll over on my back,
If you are in a gown that is on backwards, sizes to big, I swear it was a tent,
And I am all twisted up, I think well now I can not move, this should be fun.
So back the other way I go, lord I lay there thinking I could have just run a ten mile marathon,
I was already exhausted, and I had not even made it into the second room,
But at least by this time the technician and I had bonded and she seemed in much better spirits.
SO after 4 glasses of barium and almost 5 hours later I could leave,
Some of the other patients had gone home after an hour, and we were all having the same test done.
One little young lady was complaining because she had waited over an hour and a half,
So there was 4 of us waiting to be called back into xray and we all had the giggles,
I told them about telling the technician about back in 2007,
I thought we were going to have to pick the one lady up off the floor,
so when I left I thought well at least we had a few laughs,
made a not so pleasant time okay.
When my husband got home I asked him what he did last Thursday,
He said he played ball and I laughed thinking,
he is probably right, then I asked if he could remember 2007.
Anyway I told him the story and we had quite a laugh.
I really believe the ability to laugh at myself is what keeps me grounded.
after all laughter is the best medicine.
I promise never to discuss this subject again,
besides the technician I am sure
got the last laugh today,
I am sure she knows I have not left my house all day since I have come home.
may you always have laughter in your life.
