That thing you do in your 40s

Just got back from having my annual mammogram, which, in case you've not crossed over to FOUR-OH land, is a pretty painless process. Step up ma'am...turn this way ma'am...smmaaaashhh! It really isn't that bad, but for a fleeting second you wonder if the machine could malfunction and continue its smashing mission beyond slightly-uncomfortable to oh-my-gosh-are-you-freaking-kidding-me.

Oh, and if anyone reading this should ever in their next life become a mammography technician, don't, during the process, squint really intensely and lean into the monitor.

Alrighty take the visual of flattened out breast tissue and go enjoy your Monday.

oh man- I hate having mammograms. Let's just say they have to work really hard to get enough up on the darn machine to take the picture! LOL
