Five Photos & Stories Challenge: Gyno Visit – Photo/Story #3

My buddy, Rob of The V-Pub invited me to a 5 day challenge to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

Yesterday my post was a bit depressing so today I will be silly.
 
I had to go to the gynecologist yesterday for my annual Pap smear/visit.  In which they shared that because I am now 35, I am recommended to get a mammogram. 

Don’t get me wrong, I understand the importance but WHO THE HELL WANTS TO GET THEIR BREASTS PRESSED LIKE A PANINI?! is what my brain screamed at me.  I smiled and took the prescription and cursed my paper outfit and the bright fluorescent lights above.

I love my doctor.  Like, love love love him.  But I’ll be damned if going to the Gyno is not one of the most awkward and uncomfortable experiences ever.

Enjoy my toes that desperately need a pedicure and the rest of the torture tools you see carefully placed around the room taunting me. 

And, yes, because it’s Miami, the doctor has an advertisement in the corner for Colombian style girdles that keep you sucked and tucked without surgery… Sigh.  

Go get your check ups, ladies!

Today I nominate a beautiful human being that is humble, strong and incredibly talented. Go see Anne of The Main Focus. Check her stories and poetry out!
