You never know where you'll meet your next best friend

So yesterday I had to have a pelvic ultrasound. I didn't drink enough apparently so the traditional one would not work. We had to go with a different method....ok guys close your ears....the insertion method.(I am sure this is not the technical name) For all those who do not what I mean it is basically when a penis shaped apparatus is inserted with a camera. Yeah fun right?

So anywho it's always a little awkward when someone you met 5 seconds ago is going there. However I had the best lady. I had my ex-fiance to go with me and once we entered the room the first thing she said is "well, whatever is wrong with you , I am sure it is his fault" I knew then we would be best friends for life. As she went about her work of scanning my inner parts we made small talk. Somehow we managed to share our life stories and current situations during this process. Her conversation was so pleasant I totally forgot what was going on under the sheet. For the 30 minutes or so it took to do the scan we really got to know one another. So much so that we were sharing pics of our kids via blackberries during the process. It was more like lunch with no food than a doctors visit. While the ex was sitting in the chair wishing he hadn't come I got all my gripes about him out. It was like therapy, I felt so much better after.

At the end of the visit we switched numbers and emails and I will be attending a party at her house next weekend. You never know where you will meet your next best friend.


  1. That's a bonus! And by the way if the Ex felt bad, tell him not to...but be willing to go to his Prostate exam when he has one.

  2. Good Advice. I can only hope I get the cherished invite to his prostate exam.
