When I read this post by MHIBTY I had to concur with her musings on going in for a vag inspection. I often get reflective around this time as well.
She states that it would be nice to know, if our vags are being compared (um, which they SO are as I have a friend of a friend who is a gyno and apparently this gyno has some HORROR stories), then it would be nice to get a word of encouragement.
For example, i went to get my teeth cleaned and checked this Monday. The hygienist remarked, "Good looking teeth in there!" I felt a tinge of pride and paid a silent thank you to my mom who dutifully signed me and my brothers up for our cleanings every 6 mos. Also two years of braces -- with rubber bands, bitches! (I know what pain is.)
I would say it's just as appropriate to comment something to the effect, "Nice grooming. If everyone groomed like you, my job would be a lot easier!" I have an equal or even greater amount of pride in the navigability of my business down there as I do to the health of my teeth.
So why not a pat on the back, heh?
