Personal Hygiene

Yesterday I had a quick trip to the clinic to see my doctor about the second cold coming on since the week before Thanksgiving. Not many folks were in the waiting room. While Lee read a magazine, I observed the other people waiting.
I really do not stare! That would be rude but I did glance around a lot. The woman who was the most interesting was sitting sideways off to our right and facing away from us. Therefore she didn't see my very coy "glances."
She had a large quilted bag - almost too large to be a purse but I noticed she was searching in it for something deep inside. At last she found her hand/body lotion and applied it liberally to her bare arms. It was a chilly day but she had removed her jacket.
That lotion was powerful in the smelling department.
Next she found a mirror and some tweezers and was actually pulling hairs from her middle aged moustache. (Ladies, you all know what I mean if you are of a certain age.)  About this time, we were called in for my appointment.
Now I'll never know if she flossed her teeth or cleaned her ears with one of those new rotor rooter things I see on tv.


  1. Oh my, she apparently was making the best of her time. I could almost smell the lotion. Of course I cannot do fragrance at all so I would have probably held my nose and gasped alot to get her attention. Hope she didn't clip her toenails whilst waiting.
    I wrote about the afghan on Tuesday last even posted a photo! :)

  2. Oh, my, talking on the cell phone unnerves me. This would have sent me into hiding behind my book.
