“You Ain’t Never Had a Friend Like Me”
I had to call a friend and ask for a very weird favor. What I wanted to ask: “Hey, since you have had a successful pregnancy and a gorgeous, healthy child, hows about popping one out for me?” What I asked: “Hey, can you drive me to my HSG appointment so I can take my deliciously wonderful hydrocodone?” She said yes, to the second one.
The HSG (where they shoot dye up your bajingo*) was originally scheduled for Monday, but they had to reschedule for Wednesday. Not such a big deal, except that my husband will be out of town then and I can not take ibuprofen, so the only pain relief I can safely take does not mix well with driving. Then again, Nichole Richie took hydrocodone, marijuana, and drank alcohol while driving and she is 12+ weeks pregnant now, so perhaps I should try that approach?
*The term bajingo comes from a 2002 episode of Scrubs.
Elliot: “Those gyno girls are putting a lot of pressure on me. We must have looked at a hundred women’s bajingos today. Bajingo, bajingo, bajingo. I can’t even look at my own bajingo.”
Carla: “Is that because it looks so much like a vagina?”
