Awkward, really really awkward

Totally awkward Tuesday yet again, check out Tova @ secret life of Tova darling for the rest of the awkwardness.

I am just going to spill out the truth here.  I have a hyper mobile left nut ( yes that is the technical term).   I didn't know this until on day I had a little bit of an experience, to be told later, that led me to get some things tested out.  The word torsion might not mean much to you, yet to the male generation it is basically a kiss of death.  The way to get this checked out is to have an ultra sound on your testies.  Ultra sound day came around and I went to the hospital to get it done.  At this point I had been to a few doctors and seen a few assistants, nurses, my family doctor, specialists, you name it and they have seen my junk at this point.  I have no dignity left, or I am just plain old comfortable with these people checking me out.  So, at the hospital in the ultra sound room I figure that hey, just one more professional person checking out the goods no big deal.  I walk in the room, and here comes the tech, who asks if I mind if the trainee handles this ultra sound.  The tech is maybe 22 and just out of college and the trainee couldn't have been but 20ish.  Of course the tech has to give a play by play to the trainee as to what she is supposed to do.  She put the jelly where it had to go and started the test, yet if that ain't awkward than I don't know what is...

Found you through Tova.
Yes, that certainly is awkward. But since, as a woman, I see a gynecologist once a year I have no pity for you. Just a good laugh!
