For the past year or so, I’ve been going to Planned Parenthood as my primary OB/GYN care. The last visit I had earlier this year was for my annual exam, and I met with yet another fabulous female doctor who had quirky hair and tattoos on her hands (like me!). When she was finished, I got up to get dressed and she said “Take your time, I’m just going to look at these slides under the microscope.” I paused mid-bra hooking, and poked my head out from behind the curtain to say, “How freaking cool is your job that you get to say things ‘I’m just going to look at these under my microscope’?!” She turned around with a giggle, replying with “YOU HAVE NO IDEA!” If anyone was walking by, they must have thought two crazy people were in the room because of the way we were laughing.
