Top Things NOT To Say In A Mammogram

It's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, y'all. You know what that means. It's time to take care of your breasts, boobies, big girls, sweater puppies, ta-ta's, or in my case- 36Longs. 
I dealt with the stress of a mammogram the way I deal with most things- humor. I don't know if the technician appreciated my ramblings but it certainly helped me. 
Now that my mammogram is over, I feel relief and I keep thinking, "That's it? Really? That was so easy peasy!"
Go get your mammogram on and here is a list of things NOT to say.

    1. While mammograms can be scary, boobs are just plain funny to me.

  2. My mom always said, "They take two cinder blocks and smash your bibs in between them." I guess I should go get smashed one of these days.

  3. I had a scare two years ago and had to get my first mammogram much earlier than anticipated. I waited in a nice room, with a nice robe before the exam and got free coffee and a free chapstick. When the woman was mashin' my sistas in the machine, I looked at her and said, "I bet you see a LOT of boobs"....because I wanted to break the silence. Luckily, she had a good sense of humor and said, "Yep. ALL kinds too." It was good to share a chuckle! Thanks for making me laugh, as always!

    1. You must have been so frightened. Yep, I'm familiar with using humor to deal with stress!

    2. How weird that they gave you chapstick! Who was sitting around trying to figure out what to give women to calm them down in the waiting room and said "I KNOW, let's give them CHAPSTICK!" I'm sure it must have been a man!

  4. Hey Kerry!!!

    As usual you had me laughing!! In my cell phone directory I have the doctors listed not by their names, but, by what part of my body the specialize in.

    For example, Dr. Wong is my Bum Dr., so, he's under Bum...That just doesn't sound right!! So I have the Eye Dr, Tooth Dr. and Boob Dr. It's my way of laughing at the whole thing.

    Last, but, not least, I said to my boob tech, "Wait a second while I pick it up of the floor!!!

    Enjoy the rest of the week!!

  11. The last time my mom got a mammogram, I texted her, "How was it?"
    She responded, "Pressing."
    Thanks for promoting the smooshing!
