 This did not happen to me, but I thought it was cute and deserved to be shared.
The Queen Jester

The Washcloth

      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 gynaecologists 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 appointment.

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. Ever.


  1. Oh dear, how embarrassing!! No, I wouldn't ever go back to that doctor again either. But you know, it's the sort of thing that any one of us could do. Gosh, I'm still giggling!

    Western and Central MA and New Hampshire are not all that far away. Let me know your itinerary. Maybe I can get away for a day trip and meet you. That would be nice.

    Tootsie and I are going to enjoy some early lunch now and then hop into bed for a nap. Tonight is a work night. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

  3. Having a hard time taking daily full showers (since my recent hip replacement), I have used the "short" method occasionally. This story had me laughing so hard my husband had to come and ask what was the matter. Thanks for getting my endorphins awaken tonight!
