A friend of mine shared this photo she took today. These mountains have some relevance to my blog post, so I include the cultural piece.
The Spanish Peaks are a pair of prominent mountains located in southwestern
(pronounced Wa-ha-toy-a), meaning "two breasts". The Ute name translates as
"Breasts of the Earth"
Yesterday, I came home and grabbed the mail. Included was an envelope from my doctor's office. Recall that I met my new(ish) doctor a few months ago. I'm not a regular enough patient to know why my previous doctor left, and while I am a bit curious, I'm okay with not being a familiar enough patient to know.
Anyway, so I finally got around to meeting her when I went for my checkup. I like her, she's friendly and thorough and accessible. But I couldn't figure out why I'd be getting mail from the office. So I opened it to find that I've been busted. Pun intended?
Dear Abby (got a ring to it, no?),
It has come to our attention that Dr. Hooburtz (not her real name) previously ordered the following procedure for you and it has not been completed. Please call the phone nmber provided to have it scheduled...
Yikes, really?!? Busted by the mammogram NSA!
They're watching? My other doctor didn't watch, because I totally slacked the mammogram when she ordered it too, so I know! But I got to it. EVENTUALLY!
Okay, I guess I'd better call. I mean, if she can know these things and even invoke the spirit of the Huajatollas, that's pretty powerful.
*gasp* I feel so exposed!
