Uvula. It's a funny word...
Ok - look at the picture. See the Uvula? It's the punching bag in the back of your throat. Yes, it's a funny word.
A little backstory: I have the ability to open my throat. Really WIDE. (I can hear everyone snickering now) (BEHAVE). My boss cracks up everytime I'm in the chair - you can literally look down my throat without touching anything in my mouth.
I'm a multi-talented tigger.
So the other day I was having a tooth issue. There I was, in the dental chair, patients in the other treatment rooms... and bsgirl (who LOVES to make up her own words for things and people) YELLS from the front desk...
"DOCTOR - MAKE SURE YOU CHECK HER VULVA WHILE YOU'RE IN THERE!!"
I sh*t you not. The entire office erupted in laughter. Welcome to my world.
