I spent the better part of the morning taking care of health stuff. I decided it was best to get everything done at once, submitting consent forms and paper work to the endocrinology department, getting a pap smear, obtaining sperm cups, and suffering through a painful x-ray exam that entails pushing dye through your fallopian tubes. When they say you will feel mild discomfort, that is code for pain. You will feel pain. The nurse, the intern, and the nurse practioner were all really sweet, with off-the-charts bedside manner, but I am pretty sure none of them have had the procedure done on themselves! When it was over, the intern touched my shoulder. “How was it? Not so bad?”
“No! It was bad.”
I’ve been sullen all day. Walked down to La Boulange to grab a few chocolate chip cookies. What is going on with the weather? It’s a mope from home day.
