So today I successfully navigated a modern rite of passage of sorts.
... if boobs were zits, mine would have spewed their juices all over the mammogram machine.
Yup, had my first ever mammogram today.
No, no, not to worry, there's no mysterious lump that needs a look-see; rather, my (suspect) OB/GYN is of the opinion that a mammogram should be done at age 35, and I'm not arguing, I'm all for establishing a baseline.
But maaaaan, my puppies got quite the smooshing! :p

... so yesterday, Kosh and I went in for eye exams and glasses... I've only ever done a full eye exam once, like 10 years ago - I can fake it w/o glasses most of the time, since I've got just slight astigmatism and a mild case of rabun jauh which combine to poor vision usually at night when it's raining. And we went in for the exams and all to make use of the vision thingy Kosh had been paying for, which we'd not used/redeemed, via work.
here's the question: ... how many times was I lying down on the floor at the eye doc's place?
Why?, you ask?
Well, my body is made in such a way that when it feels it's being violated, it faints, or threatens to, anyway.
That is it a violation of my body to drain blood out of me is a well-known truth, and the reason why my donating blood is not practical. My ONE childhood experience with a tampon was also deemed a violation, which is why I'll stick to sanitary pads, thank you very much. Extreme claustrophobic c…
.. so to distract from that condition, let me share this little tidbit: to my great amusement, I realise my new niece is called doodoo! Well, not really lah, but the translation of her names into American English sounds like "doodoo", I kid you not!!

Nah, too cruel... I'll think of something... :p
p/s: did I mention? I've been told she looks like me. The poor thing!! LMAO :)
