The ice bucket challenge, the love your spouse challenge, perfect mum challenge (or what ever it was called), any of those things. For starters the people I love are told and shown regularly, I don’t need to prove it to Facebook, and for seconds they blur on my timeline, the awareness they are trying to raise gets lost in the sea of sameness so ends up doing nothing.
Now, the latest is “Smear for smear” and I WAS nominated, but posting a photo of me with delicately smeared lipstick will get us nowhere for a few reasons, I am not a delecate sort, I don’t even know WHERE my lipstick is, and it need to not get lost in a blur.
OK, like it says, a smear is not the nicest thing in the world, but then a lot of people don’t like going to the dentist either (hang in there it’ll make sense i a bit). You see, you should go to the dentist ever year or two, even if you have no problems, because your dentist will be able t spot problems before YOU can tell there is one, I had a tooth that was growing in the roof of my mouth as a kid, I had no problems with it but had the dentist not spotted it I’d look like a narwhal right now.
I swear I have a photo of a narwhal but I can’t find it.
Now, smear tests, get them done, once every three years is not that bad now is it? my last smear showed abnormal cells and I was disappointed. Yes you read that right disappointed, you see a friend had told me they burned the abnormal cells off with a FRICKING LAZER, and I was all “ooooh coool”, well they didn’t, they cut a sample with what can only be described as a pair of nail clippers. As you can imagine this was not nice, at all, in the slightest, but when the clippings had been sent to the lab they relieved themselves to be nothing of any importance, phew. But can you imagine if they HAD been cancer and I had not bothered with my smear? I would have had a lot more to deal with than an ice-pop stick and a pair of nail clippers.
Cervical cancer is preventable, but if you don’t keep an eye out for it it will hit you side on when it’s too late.
OK, here’s the band wagon photo
Said I wasn’t delecate.
