A Great E-Mail

I received this e-mail from a friend. It is so cute…Enjoy!!

There is not a woman alive today 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 8:45 a.m. 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!
