My annual visit to the gynecologist....




i hate going to the gyni, ok i hate going to the dentist even more, but still... sitting in a floral pink nightgown with your ankles in the air is not my idea of fun, well... ok won't go there! and to top it all off the whole affair cost me a smashing R810, ridiculous!!! no wonder everybody wants to be a doctor, or a plumber, apparently they also make uber bucks. the verdict was pleasing, nothing to worry about except.... i have to, have to, have to stop smoking. oh dear.... my gyni is a very friendly guy, a real sweetie pie but today he was very upset with me, that's a bit of an understatement... apparently i forgot to tell him that i am a smoker. i really did not hide this fact from him on purpose, sort of just never came up in our discussion, sheish, he should have asked me if it was so bloody important! i knew it was important though, so i confessed, i thought the guy was going to pop a vein, his left temple was throbbing profusely.... oops (no no it was not the sight of my vajaijai that did this) ... his reaction just really scared me. so he told me about a book i should read, i've heard from other ex-smokers that it apparently works like a charm. it's called allan carr's easy way to quit smoking. that title is probably the most widely used phrase of all time, right after "the cheque is in the mail". the only reason why i would consider buying this book, R167 @ kalahari.net, is that i've heard that it works. a carton of smokes cost me roughly the same, so for now i'll smoke only 10 cigarettes a day, that's what the doctor said, and i'll buy the book and tell you if it works. according to me i've got lungs of steel, i swear, i run every day and never ever cough, not bad for 35 year old chick-a-babe, don't u think? anyway i just hate the idea of giving up smoking, i really like to smoke, any smoker will tell you this, we don't lie when we say this, it's really nice, don't try it, just trust me on this! my son made me very cross one day and i stormed out of the house to calm down, obviously with a cigarette, when i came back in i was much calmer, he looked at me and said "mommy sometimes it's a good thing that you smoke!" well there you have it, even my son agrees, but i have to listen to the doctor, after 35, on the pill, your chances of getting a stroke apparently grows tremendously, i scare easily, so i will do my best to listen to my good doctor.... i think i'll go have a smoke now...
