A Smile Every Sunday – The Washcloth

The Washcloth

This has to be read, laughed at and passed on. There is not
 a woman alive today who won’t crack up over this!

I was due for an appointment with the gynecologist later in
 the week. Early one morning, I received a call from the
 doctor’s office 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 office took 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 pajamas, wet the
 washcloth 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 washcloth 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 undressed, hopped up on the table, 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 6
 year old daughter was playing, she called out from the
 bathroom, ‘Mommy, where’s my washcloth?’

I 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.’

Never going back to that doctor. Ever.

**Thank you for sending this to me, Becky.**
