"Well woman" strikes me as an odd term. Sounds like a character in a Cecil B. Demille movie:
The well woman was portrayed by Abby Normal
*publicy photo of me in ragged dress, holding a roped bucket*
My doctor's appointment wasn't nearly as dramatic. In fact, Dr. told me I was boring.
"I don't see you for two years and you're as boring as the last time!"
I told her I would try to keep it that way.
Anyway, she's quite friendly and laid back. I think this was only my second appointment with her as she replaced my previous doctor who was also quite friendly and laid back. So we're going through the various well woman pokes and prods (pick a spot on the ceiling... pick a spot on the ceiling... pick a spot on the...), and she's talking about her daughters and the recent vacation they all took, and next thing I know, she starts throwing around the dreaded "colonoscopy".
Wait, what? We were having such a nice visit.
Another perk of turning 50. Pfffft.
Meanwhile, as I was sitting in the waiting area, I couldn't help but notice the office aquarium. In addition to other varieties, it is home to three fish that are the same breed as my monsters. Except the doctor's office fish seem typical as publicized.
"...a South American fish that will make a great addition to any community aquarium..."
HA! Very funny, not. Tell that to my large deceased community!
See them here? Just behind my shoulder?
I guess there's something to be said for ruthlessness. If I become ruthless, can I skip the colonoscopy?
