The other day I went to my OB’s office and finally had my glucose test done. Anyway, you drink this really nasty sugary orange drink, wait an hour, and then they draw your blood to make sure you haven’t turned diabetic. Last time I took the test, the office just served the Tang-like beverage in a bottle. However, at my new doc’s, they handed me the drink in a urine sample cup — which I thought was unintentionally hilarious on the nurse’s part, especially because she didn’t seem to see the irony in serving me yellow liquid out of a cup meant for pee.
At first I thought she was joking, but when I said, “Haha. Nice touch with the urine sample cup” and she didn’t crack a smile, I just chugged the concoction and shut the hell up. I’ll admit the nurse did give me a strange look when I asked if I could have some cups “for my next cocktail party” but she gave me a sleeve of them anyway without question.
So, what does warm apple juice plus free urine sample cups from the doctor’s office plus a groggy husband equal? Early April Fool’s!!! My plan as I write this, and Grey slumbers beside me, is to leave a warm “urine sample” cup of apple juice next to his breakfast cereal tomorrow morning. Then, when he drinks it, I’ll say, “Grey! That was my specimen for the gynecologist!” HAHAHAHA…I’m sure hilariousness will ensue…ah, the things that make me happy…
