I was so stressed today and had to run off to a doctor's appointment that I didn't want to go to. When I got to the office, the doc was running really late, and I ended up sitting in the waiting room for 20 minutes.
Then, I was sent to an examination room, where I waited another five minutes, after which a nurse came in to ask why I was there. I told her it was for the annual crank crank scrape scrape, so she asked me to whip off my pants and lie on the table covered in one of those oh-so-awesome paper sheets.
So, I did that. And then I waited. And waited. And waited. And then waited some more. I'm not sure how long I was there, but it was actually relaxing after a very tense day to zone out on the table.
When my doctor finally came in and saw me lying there, she was surprised.
Doc: Have you been here the whole time, lying there with your pants off?
Doc: [Shaking her head] I can't believe the nurse told you to do that. I'm running really late.
Savia: No, it's okay. I was having an awful day and was really bitchy and I just kind of meditated and chilled out. It was good.
Doc: You're kind of like a baby that gets really cranky, and then you just take off its diaper and then it's happy.
Savia: I've got to say, Doc, that is the first time anyone has compared me to a baby without a diaper.
Doc: I have to tell the nurse about this. She will find it so funny!
Savia: I should hang out without my pants off more often. I need to find a way to do this at work!
The doc told the nurse, and then reported back to me that she said whenever I need to chill out on an exam table without my pants on, she'll hook me up. Sweet.
As I was leaving, I smiled and said, "I feel so much better now!" and my doc laughed her head off.
I guess this isn't the usual response to a pap.
