I had my first mammogram today. The mammotech (who is about 10 years older then me) had me in the mammoroom and I was fiddling with my mammokimono when she said,
"Wow! Those are really nice!"
Me: Um.... thank you?
Her: They are really awesome!
Me: Ummm.... thanks?
Her: Seriously! I've been looking for a pair just like those forever! Where'd you get them?
Me: Well, um, I guess, I mean... I.... grew them... in the... normal way?
Then she looks at me strangely... pauses.... turns beet red and says, "No, no, no, ohno. I had pointed to your glasses. I was talking about your glasses!"
Then we were both beet red and laughing until we both had tears streaming out of our eyes.
Why can't anything be normal and not embarrassing for me?
The girls are pretty awesome though, Ruth!
