I went to the doctor yesterday. I don’t really do that, go to the doctor I mean. I’m more of a “I’m just gonna wait out this cold/cough/congestion thing. I’m sure it’ll pass soon.” kind of girl. For the most part, that has worked out pretty well. But I also have high blood pressure (maybe more on that later :/ and I needed a refill on my meds. Did you know they won’t just hand you medication at the pharmacy, even if you tell them you REALLY DO NEED IT!! So, I made my appointment and went.
The doctor was surprised I hadn’t had a “wellness” exam in like three years. (oops!) So they made me pee in a cup (as well as a few other equally dignified procedures).
Here are the things I find funny about peeing in a cup:
- Is it weird that this cup had the same kind of lid as one of those disposable coffee cups? You know, the kind with the flip up lid for when you want to take a sip. Why? What would I need that for?
- I never know how to hold a “specimen container.” Do I hold it like a regular cup? Like I’m going to take a drink? Again, not helping with the flip up lid.
- I love the picture of Groucho Marx bossing around the scientist with the microscope :) And of course he’s a scientist; he has a microscope.
- Also, is the “8 oz. Capacity” label really necessary? Really? Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve never even come close to maxing out one of those cups.
