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...

Ready?

"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.

Oh my . . . that's funny, but if your dentist can check your vulva by you just opening your mouth, both of you are multitalented!!! ha ha Thanks for the laugh!

That's funny, my husband the dentist, didn't tell me about that one. God only knows what goes on when I'm not there. I'll have to ask him to check mine and see where he looks.
