My life is a joke (Boob Edition)

I went for my very first mammogram this morning. All weekend, I feared the pain, but it was really nothing. Problem was...3/4 of the way done, the machine broke down. Fun!

The technician tried to reboot. Nothing happened. So she is standing there pushing buttons and getting angry and frustrated, and I am going "la dee dah do do do" with the trouble-making boobs exposed.

She sent me off for other x-rays (bone density, etc.) and when I came back it still wasn't working. Half an hour later, after she talked to the technician on the phone about "la maudite machine" it started up again and got done. So something that should've taken 10 minutes took an hour. On a Monday morning. Why is it always me? At least my chest doesn't hurt.

I haven't had to face the mammogram yet, but I do have the 'bowel cancer testing kit' sitting patiently in my bathroom, waiting for me to summon up the courage...and with a history of bowel cancer in the family, I guess I need to summon up the courage soon! The joys of growing old!
I hope your tests turn out well Nanuk.

The mammogram was really nothing as far as pain goes. I was surprised.

I've had a colonoscopy (I know TMI) and it was no big deal either.
