Lie down and hit the button

A funny story came to mind as my mom told me she was to have a mammogram next week.

Gramma P (our neighbor before we moved) once told me that to prepare for a mammogram one should do the following:

*Lie down in your garage in a position where the mammogrammed parts lie directly under the door as it lowers.
*Next, have someone lower the door onto your mammogrammed parts.
*Raise the door.
*Repeat numerous times.

Oh my!

This is what I have to look forward to?

May I start tomorrow?

Yes, I'm joking, of course.

But, this got my thinking juices flowing.

And so I ask all of you out there, can you think of other ways to prepare for those we-shouldn't-talk-about-that procedures that will be endured later on in life?

Oh the mental pictures that come to mind!

Don't make your appt. just before "that time" of the month. Ouch! Otherwise it is not too bad.

I really dreaded my first one,
but much to my surprise it
wasn't bad. Have had ALOT of
other things done that make this
seem like a piece of cake.

Don't worry.

I've heard the "preperation" for a certain "COLON" procedure is pretty hideous.....I'm sure our dear mother could shed some more light on that though.
