Joke Title: The Washcloth

 This has to be read, laughed at and passed 

on. There is not a woman alive today who 

won’t crack up over this! This is a real 


and no its not me so ignore the I’s and me’s. I 

was due for an appointment with the 

gynecologist later in the week. Early one 

morning, I received a call from the doctor’s 

office to tell me that I had been rescheduled for 

that morning at 9:30 am. I had only just packed 

everyone off to work and school, and it was 

already around 8:45 am. The trip to his office 

took about 35 minutes, so I didn’t have any 

time to spare. As most women do, I like to take 

a little extra effort over hygiene when making 

such visits, but this time I wasn’t going to be 

able to make the full effort. So, I rushed 

upstairs, threw off my pajamas, wet the 

washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and 

gave myself a quick wash in that area to make 

sure I was at least presentable. I threw the 

washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some 

clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my 

appointment. I was in the waiting room for only 

a few minutes when I was called in. Knowing 

the procedure, as I’m sure you do, I hopped up 

on the table, looked over at the other side of 

the room and pretended that I was in Paris or 

some other place a million miles away. I was a 

little surprised when the doctor said, “My, we 

have made an extra effort this morning, 

haven’t we?” I didn’t respond. After the 

appointment, I heaved a sigh of relief and went 

home. The rest of the day was normal. Some 

shopping, cleaning, cooking. After school 

when my 6 year old daughter was playing, she 

called out from the bathroom, “Mommy, 

where’s my washcloth?” I told her to get 

another one from the cupboard. She

 “No, I need the one that was here by the sink, 

it had all my glitter and sparkles saved inside 

it.” I’ll NEVER going back to that doctor ever!
