I don't know how much you know about suppositories.
I'm not claiming to be an expert, but I know a thing or two about them. And even before I ever used one, I knew that the word "suppository" did not automatically mean "thing you put in your butt."
Which put me one step ahead of my husband.
Anyway, last week, I was prescribed these vaginal suppositories. Not a big deal. They're little pills, not greasy, not messy. At night I make sure my hands are clean, then stick them in and go to sleep.
It's not like I'd never put my finger in my vagina before, you know?
I was going to say that in fact, I've had plenty of fingers in my vagina, but it doesn't sound quite right. But once you've had a baby, you've been examined so many times by such a variety of people that it's kind of all, whatever.
Not that I sit around with my finger in my vagina. Maybe if I were a guy. In which case I wouldn't have one. But you know how men are always shifting their junk around? Because they need more ROOM in their pants or something?
Imagine if women did that.
"What? My vagina just needed a little adjusting. It's just so huge and sometimes I just need to reposition it."
Christ, am I so far off topic.
So the suppositories.
The other night I took a shower and got into bed, and Nick asked if I'd washed my hair, and I said no. He commented that it looked like I had. It was wet around the edges from washing my face.
To which I replied, "Yeah, that's a little trick I picked up in 'Nam."
No, I don't know why I say this shit. But I'm glad I do, because I then added this, "Kind of like the vaginal suppositories."
I reached over and shook the bottle.
"Vaginal! Vaginal! You put them in your vagina!"
To which I was all, "Yes, and?"
"I thought you stuck them in your butt!"
"Yes! So every night, you get in bed, and you stick one in, and I was thinking, ew, isn't she more hygienic than that? And then last night you reached over and put your hand on my face when you kissed me goodnight, and I was so glad it was your other hand!"
The man has been sitting around thinking I stick my finger in my anus and never bother to wash my hands.
AND HE WASN'T GOING TO SAY ANYTHING.
