Yellow Undies

Back when I was a young girl, there was a certain "standard" your mother drilled into your head. Always wear nice clean underwear when you go out...just in case you're in an accident. Uh-huh.

I had a doctor's appointment today. And I always wear a bright colored top with my jeans, just to cheer myself up. Today it was a yellow top. And just because I'm girly under my grandmotherly exterior, I also wore bright yellow granny panties and sports bra. I had a "theme" going on.

This was a quarterly check up with bloodwork so I didn't expect too much excitement. But when I mentioned a chronic backache, my doc decided she wanted an x-ray...and handed me a gown to put on. Now I'm in an aircast as some of my readers know, so she helped me get undressed.

I'm standing there in my bright yellow undies. She gave me the ol' up and down glance and said, "Nice outfit. What happened to the socks?"

Which just goes to show you, my mother knew what she was talking about.

Oh, yeah. The x-ray didn't pick up any terrible serious issues. So all's well...right?



  1. Hahahaha!!!!! Reminds me of what a nurse said before my last colonoscopy. People actually draw on themselves..."insert here" "this side up" etc. Hahaha.

  2. Hehehe. Oh, boy. I can't imagine that!

  3. Glad the Xray came back okay. Cool on the yellow undies. :)

  4. Hope you're feeling better soon and heal up quickly!!

  5. What color were your socks? Did they break theme? Too funny! Glad your back is okay. Sometimes when one part is injured, another part starts to hurt.

  6. Socks were white. Haven't been able to find yellow socks...:-(
