My friend Sandra sent me this and I HAVE to share it with you because.... well read on and you'll understand.

I was due for a smear with the doctor 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 pyjamas, wet the
facecloth 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
facecloth 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 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 7 year old daughter was playing, she called out
from the bathroom, "Mummy, where's my facecloth?"

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 saved inside it."

NEVER going back to that doctor ever!!

I saw that on Rollercoaster last year - love it!

We should all dress up for the doctor, why not? :)

I’m so disappointed. I really enjoyed reading your Blog until this post. It’s a blatant lie. Google the words “doctor, facecloth & glitter” and it will return this exact story told by hundreds of different women. If you are going to plagiarise at least try and make it a little different.
