Think Of What He's Seen?!?

Keeping my neighbor busy while her husband prepared her surprise party was not hard. Our neighborhood was holding its annual parade and carnival so as we returned to her house after our fill of local crafts and waffle cones, the added cars surrounding her house wasn’t unusual. How do you hide a group of 75 people? Plan the party the same day as a neighborhood celebration!

After going home to change I walked in the door to a party going full steam. It was a wonderful turn out. I met her sisters from out of town and her old college roommate. I had heard so much about these people I felt as if I knew them already.

I had excused myself to refresh my drink and, upon returning, I saw the back of a head that looked strangely familiar. My neighbor said “Oh Ann! I believe you know my brother-in-law?” This tall man turned around with the biggest grin and said “Well, hello Ann! How are you?”

Oh-my-gosh!

It was my OB-Gyn! What the?!?

I stood there shaking his hand like a fool. His wife said “Oh, are you one of his patients, too? Nice to meet you.” Um, yeah. Nice to meet you, too. I felt so awkward. I wasn’t prepared! I didn’t have an appointment!

I did my best to make pleasant conversation and prayed that my inner-filter was at the top of its game. (No Ann, don’t mention your last check-up. No Ann, don’t think about what he’s seen. And please Ann, get yourself under control and stop sweating!) I complimented him on his sporty looking shirt and said it looked much better than his scrubs. Lame.

I just couldn’t handle the pressure anymore and excused myself to get a very large refill. As I passed my neighbor she couldn’t help but laugh. Hey… just whose “surprise” party was this supposed to be anyway?

  1. That sounds like a dream gone very, very bad! Talk about uncomfortable situations! I'm impressed that you were able to make a joke at all.

  8. Oh, that is just too funny!
    A friend of mine ended up with a HOT gyne and was so mortified she had to switch after just one appointment. She said she almost passed out when he first walked into the exam room. Can you even imagine???

  11. OMG, a woman's worst nightmare! Or, one of them anyway. I know I would have been thinking, "Okay, this guy has seen my hoo hoo. This guy has seen INSIDE my hoo hoo. I'm outta here!"

  12. OK, that is just plain awkward! Poor you, but you seemed to handle it with grace. I'd have gotten like 100 refills too!

  13. Oh yeah that is uncomfortable. I went to a party once and my gyno was there. I hated it. Very weird. I even changed docs after that. It made me uncomfortable to have my doc friends with my friends.

  14. Oh my goodness that is so funny!

  15. I felt awkward just reading it and I'm not even a part of the story! A refill sounds like a valid option!! It is funny though.

  18. Oh my God. That had to be quite a shock, and potentially embarrassing. That is definitely going to my list of things I hope never happen to me.

  19. I once saw my doc at the hardware store. I didn't know what to say so I chose, "You look different in regular clothes." Thank goodness he didn't make the obvious reply! He looked more uncomfortable than I was.

  20. How funny. Think of it this way...he's seen EVERYTHING now you can have small talk.

  21. Now that is an awkward moment, and meeting his wife too!!! Sounds like you handled yourself very well!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Too funny!! Maybe that's why I chose a female dr. I have seen her in other business situations, but I've never felt uncomfortable.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ah yes, just SLIGHTLY embarrassing. At least his wife wasn't phased!?

    ReplyDelete
  24. haaaaa! OMG. That would be very awkward and I too would run for a refill!!! a big one.

  25. HA! I think I might have laughed out loud when I read that. He must get a kick out of the reaction he gets from people.
