This is Rancher's wife, had to giggle on this one. Now I am going to be a bit nervous next time I go.

I actually kept my mammogram appointment. I was met with, "Hi! I'm Belinda!" This perky clipboard carrier smiled from ear to ear, tilted her head to one side and crooned, "All I need you to do is step into this room right hereee, strip to the waist, thennnn slip on this gown. Everything clearrrr?" I'm thinking, "Belinda ... try decaf. This ain't rocket science." Belinda skipped away to prepare the chamber of horrors.

Call me crazy, but I suspect a man invented this machine. It takes a perfectly healthy cup size of 36-B to a size 38-LONG in less than 60 seconds. Also, girls aren't made of sugar and spice and everything nice. It's Spandex. We can be stretched, pulled and twisted over a cold four-inch piece of square glass and still pop back into shape.

With the right side finished, Belinda flipped me (literally) to the left and said, "Hmmmm, can you stand on your tippy toes and lean in a tad so we can get everything?"

"Fine," I answered. I was freezing, bruised, and out of air, so why not use the remaining circulation in my legs and neck and finish me off?

My body was in a holding pattern that defied gravity (with my other boob wedged between those two four inch pieces of square glass) when we heard, then felt a zap! Complete darkness and the power went off!

"What?" I yelled.

"Oh, Maintenance is working. Bet they hit a snag." Belinda headed for the door.
"Excuse me! You're not leaving me in this vise alone, are you?" I shouted.

Belinda kept going and said, "Oh, you fussy puppy. The door's wide open so you'll have the emergency hall lights. I'll be righttttt backkkk."

Before I could shout "NOOOO!" she disappeared. And that's exactly how Bubba and Earl, the Maintenance men extraordinaire, found me, half naked and part of me dangling from the Jaws of Life and the other part smashed between glass! After exchanging polite "Hi. How's it going" type greetings, Bubba (or possibly Earl) asked, to my utter disbelief, if I knew the power was off.

Trying to disguise my hysteria, I replied with as much calmness as possible, "Uh, yes...yes I did, thanks."

"You bet. Take care," Bubba replied and waved good-bye as though I'd been standing in the line at the grocery store.

Two hours later, Belinda breezes in, wearing a sheepish grin and making no attempt to suppress her amusement. She said, "Oh, I am soooo sorry! The power came back on and I totally forgot about you! And silly me, I went to lunch. Are we upset?"

And that, Your Honor, is exactly how her head ended up between the clamps.
That's too funny, after the fact of course :eek: :) Glad to hear from you, thought maybe Rancher had disappeared. Is he still cranky?
I thought it was a hoot. Rancher is been busy, has had a run of grass tetnany to doctor. Seems like the whole neighborhood has the same problem. Very few in this area that weren't hit with it.
It never occurred to me to check if the mammogram machine has an "emergency exit"!
Once while working as a nurse I tried unsuccessfully to convince an older woman she should have a mammogram. She exclaimed,"You'll never get me to take one of those. My sister had one and her breast pointed a different direction afterwards permanently! :roll:
mrs rancher....wayyyy toooo funnnnyyyyyy!!! Ooooppppsssss, forgotttt to switchhhhh to decaffffff when i gotttttt offfffff workkkkk!! :wink:
