Ten ways getting a mammogram is like losing your virginity.


  1. You make small-talk but not eye contact.
  2. Your boobs are squeezed, tweaked, and mangled with no apparent goal in mind.
  3. You move your left arm above your left shoulder, but try to relax, but turn to the side and stop tensing up and move your head to the side and hold your breath.  You know… just be normal.
  4. You get the nervous giggles and feel it’s necessary to whisper when you hear voices on the other side of the door.
  5. The other person is wearing latex.
  6. You reply whilst holding your breath “Yes, I’m fine” when asked “Are you doing okay?”
  7. You keep your socks on.
  8. You count both the ceiling tiles and the seconds until it’s over.
  9. You don’t have to count long.
  10. There’s a chance you’ll find out you have a horrible disease when it’s all done.

Everything that I never knew I wanted.

Why being a bad "parent" makes me a good "mom"

I am BLESSED and I don't care who knows it.

To blog or to Facebook? That is the question....

Why December kicks my ass. Every fracking year.

    Sad. But true. I was hoping some of those would be an exaggeration. But you are spot on. Well played my friend.

  2. Carrie says:

    Had my first one last year… that about sums it up. Great Post!

  3. Hysterical. You are amazing:)

  4. Oh, I love this. Perfect, HMM. Plus your friends all want to hear about it when you’re done. If you tell them at all.

    Okay, fine. Mine blows.. But between paper gowns and back seats of cars, I got nothing. Well said!

  5. Great list definitely! One thing I always think about – “PLEASE don’t let me fart”. Farts tend to visit when I am nervous or drinking (which the latter means about every afternoon around 6ish.
