The Washcloth - "joke/funny story"

I was blog hopping this morning as I got up way to early for a Saturday. I should be sleeping at 6:00 A.M.!!
Any way - somehow I made it to an altered arts blog and looking at all the beautiful creations, this one crafter stopped in the middle of her blog and mentioned this "joke".

Since my "woman" appt is due up soon - I had to chuckle:
Read on and hope no one is put off - but I wanted to share what I read:

The Washcloth

This has to be read, laughed at and passed on. 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 am.

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!!

Anyway - hope you got a chuckle - this poor woman! back to crafting!

Hey, Sheryl, someone emailed that to me before I retired; and, it is absolutely hysterical. I laughed so hard everyone in the office was laughing along with me and didn't even know what they were laughing at!!! You don't know this, but I have a REAL hearty laugh which everyone says is contagious. I guess it is because when I laugh everyone usually laughs with me -- LOL!!!
