The joy of turning "40"

By now most of you know that I turned 40 this month. I really don't have any complaints about that. There is a saying, "You are only as old as you feel you are." I feel like I am still in my early 30's. Except I am tired more often!
Anyways, one of the duties as a 40 and older woman is to get yearly mammograms. I have been hearing so many things; scary, funny, embarrassing things from people and I have had people tell me that they would pray for me when I had to have this procedure. REALLY?!?!?!?
It isn't so bad. I mean, just this last Tuesday was my very first mammogram. I walked into the clinic, shook hands with an attractive young lady, proceded to take off my shirt and bra and let her fondle my breasts. What is wrong with that? Nothing, right? It was all fun and games!
Then, yesterday I get a call from the radiologist in Bellingham who actually read my mammogram. She wanted me to come into the Bellingham clinic and have more pictures taken. I was flattered! I mean, really; my breasts are great and to have someone want to have more pictures of them, I was very honored!
So, off I went this morning. I walked into the clinic, met an older woman, took off my shirt and bra and let her fondle my breasts for a while. After several pictures and touches, she refers me to yet another lady who liked my breasts so much, she wanted to take pictures of the inside! I mean, wow, I am so loved!! When she was done admiring, she brought in her friend and she looked at my breasts, fondled a little and then asked me to come back in 6 months to do it all again. I never knew the power of boobies-but now I do!!! These squishy little girls have mesmerizing powers that make people just want to touch them. Ok, maybe not so little, but you get the picture.

Now, the truth is, because I had a breast reduction 7 years ago, I have a lot of scar tissue inside. I mean, a lot! Since this was my first mammogram, they needed lots of pictures to have to compare the next time I go in. Most women go in once a year. I will too, but they want to just make sure that the scar tissue isn't hiding any other issues, so they want me back in 6 months.

To all you out there who thought you were having a bad morning-at least your boobies weren't fondled and squished flat by 4 different women in three days time!!!!

Hope I made a few people laugh with this one. It was quite the experience!!!
