Tess was due for an appointment with the gynecologist later in the week.
Early one morning, she received a call from the doctor's office to tell her that she'd been rescheduled for that morning at 9:30 a.m. She 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 she didn’t have any time to spare.
As most women do, Tess liked to take a little extra effort with hygiene when making such visits, but this time she wasn’t going to be able to make the full effort. So she rushed upstairs, threw off her pajamas, wet the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave herself a quick wash in that area to make sure she was at least presentable. She threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to her appointment.
She was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when she was called in. Knowing the procedure, she hopped up on the table, looked over at the other side of the room and pretended that she was in Paris or some other place a million miles away.
She was a little surprised when the doctor said, “My, we have made an extra effort this morning, haven’t we?” But she didn’t respond.
When the appointment was over, Tess heaved a sigh of relief and went home.
The rest of the day was normal. Some shopping, cleaning, cooking. After school, when her 6-year-old daughter was playing, she called out from the bathroom, “Mommy, where’s my washcloth?”
Tess 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.”
Needless to say Tess was never going back to that doctor again ... ever.
Well that's mortifying! LOL! SHARE if you enjoyed this story!
