Battling discomfort with humor

– Posted in: featured

I once went to the gynecologist’s office wearing a pair of pink socks with gingersnap cookies and the words “bite me” written in cutesy script. I can’t remember if my intention was to give the doctor a good giggle in the midst of my exam but I know wearing them made me feel slightly better [...]
