So my daughter had her 5 year doctor's visit scheduled for this afternoon. As requested I obtained her first morning urine sample in the provided, sterile cup. I placed said cup in our refrigerator until after school, at which point I picked her up and ran a quick errand before the dreaded appointment.
Just as a side note, are all girls this dramatic? She seriously whined and cried--off and on--for the entire 2 hours preceding the appointment and an hour after the appointment because she feared the inevitable--shots!
Now, back to the story. So after I picked her up at school we went to Target--my personal favorite for most of your shopping needs. As we were walking down the aisles she asked, "Mommy, can I please have my bag of apples?" "Of course, honey, they are right here in my purse." I reached in and flung out the bag, dangling it in front of her in the middle of the center aisle while I looked down the adjacent aisle for the final items on my list.
But nope, it wasn't her apples, it was the baggy with her urine sample inside--which I realized after a moment of her not taking the bag from my hand. That's right. I was waving around a urine sample in the middle of Target at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. She and I busted out laughing.
DOES THIS KIND OF THING ONLY HAPPEN TO ME, OR WHAT?!
I know you are wondering why I had the bag in my purse. Well, it is hot here in North Carolina. I thought the reasonable thing to do would be to put the bag in my purse so it did not "go bad" or something while we were inside. I don't know. I cannot think straight by the middle of the day.
So, apples, not urine!
