My yeast infection episode has triggered a lot of response from the readers. Oddly enough, it's more guys responding than girls. I think when females read it, they're like - nodding their head and saying "yup, that's how it is and it sucks." But for men, they think it's something vile and disgusting and something I shouldn't be writing about. But when has any topic been too gross for me to write about on this site? Anyway, sorry if any of you men have to abstain from mayonnaise for the time being.
"You've got cute toes."
How does one respond to something like that? It's not like someone is saying you have a cute smile or a nice ass or hey, supple breasts...but cute toes? All I could say was "thank you" and leave it at that. I am definitely one of those people who don't have a toe fetish. In fact, the more I look at toes, the more I think they are the strangest looking appendages we have. Toes come in all shapes, forms, sizes - like every other part of our bodies but toes are just plain weird I think. I don't get how come of those pornos and stuff can focus so much on those little piggies.
Perhaps it's a fear of sticking someone's fungus infected toes into my mouth or even taking in a bit of the grimy crud from between the toes. Somehow, I don't think people focus as much on cleaning their toes as the rest of the bodies. This also goes for ears and belly button. And what about those people who walk around barefoot all the time? Maybe they have parasites like hookworms right under the skin and what if that gets into your mouth...let alone the rest of your gastrointestinal tract. Think about that the next time you get ready to suck on some foot that came straight out of a shoe that can rival a tropical rainforest in terms of heat & humidity.
I went to see my Ob/Gyn today for my annual Well Women checkup. My Ob/Gyn is a Chinese guy. Most of my friends only go to female Ob/Gyn doctors because they think it's some strange thing if the doctor's a male. Personally, it doesn't matter as long as he's a good doctor and he knows what he's doing. I've been seeing mine for about 5 years now and his patient roster must be growing and growing because the wait gets longer and longer each time. I think I waited for an hour before he was able to see me today. I amused myself by eavesdropping in on a women getting her pregnancy results - which turned out to be positive. She didn't look too ecstatic. Her last period started on July 27th and she didn't try to find out until now.
Get a clue bitch.
The entire staff there talks to everyone in Mandarin, unless you're obviously not Chinese. I'm not well versed in pre-natal, pregnancy, gynecological terms in Mandarin but I try to get by. They must think I'm a stuck up bitch because I rarely reply in Mandarin. I don't want them to think I speak it well and then they will release the rapid fire machine gun Chinese on me. One time the nurse asked the doctor's wife why I don't speak Chinese - right in front of me. Luckily the doctor's wife answered that I do understand but I speak Cantonese better than Mandarin. But no matter how much English I speak to them, they always answer me in Mandarin. Shit they must think they're doing me a favor by helping me learn some Mandarin. They could be telling me I was pregnant and I wouldn't know.
One thing I do notice is that everyone goes there in couples. Husband & wives, boyfriend and girlfriend, mother and daughter, and so on. Boy, did I feel lonely waiting by myself. I normally go without K because he's usually working and it's not like I'm expecting a baby or something. I always wonder if the other people think I'm some young girl who got knocked up and my guy ran off when he found out.
My blood pressure normally rises whenever I go see this doctor. I tell the nurses that anyone's blood pressure will rise too if they know their legs will be up in stirrups in a matter of moments with the doctor poking around for "stuff". I always get tense as I lay there and he uses that ice cold metal thing to crank open "the big abalone". I try not to flinch or jerk but it's tough. We normally talk about Japanese food when he's inspecting me.
Maybe cause it's fishy?
The reason being that I always run into him and his wife when I'm out eating Japanese food. I don't know about you, but having your Ob/Gyn sit next to you at a restaurant is strange. I mean, c'mon, he knows what you look like...down there.
I basically got the deluxe package today with the breast exam and my blood drawn. There's nothing kinky about another man fondling your breasts. Unless of course he's some handsome Japanese actor or something. The nurses couldn't find my vein to take my blood. They tried my right arm first because I said it's easier to find it there. NO luck. Then they tried my left arm. NO luck there either - although they did poke the needle around underneath the skin quite a bit until I couldn't take it anymore. So they tried my right arm again and the nurse told me to pray we find something or else they'll take it from my knuckle area (NO.....!). Luckily we hit pay dirt and got a nice tube of blood. The nurse asked me if I was praying. I think she's religious. Perhaps sticking a needle in someone's arm is a good recruiting method.
