From Hospital to House...

Today's blog post is brought to you by the letter "H". "H" is for "hospital" and "House" and "hurt" and "humor."

My happy day began at the hospital outpatient center. 8:15 a.m.  Nothing serious. Just my annual bewb-squishing appointment. 

Although I do not relish this particular procedure, I do believe in taking care of my health.  I just take issue with this particular test and can't help but wonder why a more suitable alternative hasn't been discovered!

I swear that before I began participating in this annual affront to all womankind, my bewbs were happy, perky little things. Each year, after being so rudely handled, they seem a tad sadder and more wilted for the experience. Surely this "procedure" can't be good for them? Can you say "crush injury"?!? It definitely hurts. In my case, for days after the fact.  Which I guess can't be helped. It's a necessary evil.

However, I am thoroughly convinced that if men had to have their precious family jewels smashed in a vice on an annual basis, until said dangly bits were flat as a pancake, a kinder gentler alternative to this particular form of torture would be developed forthwith! 

Just my humble opinion on the matter! ;)

And now I'm off to watch today's episode of "House" - a little piece of the hospital experience that I can actually enjoy!

Just got mine done not too long ago, and I definitely agree with your point of view. It's hard to believe that procedure can possibly be GOOD for a girl's girls.

I haven't had to have one of those yet, but I can't imagine that it's anything but painful.

Glad you're healthy and that you didn't have a more scary reason for the bracelet!

Totally agree! Love the cartoon! :)

I totally agree! And I'm very glad there was no other sinister reason for that bracelet

I don't think there's anyone who looks forward to that procedure. I'm always grateful to have it over with.

OMG that's hysterical! My first one is coming up soon . . . I'm dreading it!

I am convinced of the same thing; if men had to go through that, an alternative would have been created LONG ago.
