All That Glitters Is Not Gold....
I was due for a smear test with the doctor later in the week. Early one morning, I received a call from the doctor's surgery 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 surgerytakes 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 pyjamas, wet the facecloth 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 face-cloth 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 couch, 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 7 year old daughter was playing, she called out from the bathroom, 'Mummy, where's my face-cloth?'
I told her to get another one from the airing-cupboard...
She replied, 'No, I want the one that was here by the sink, it had all my glitter saved inside it.'
NEVER going back to that doctor ever again!....!
