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 everyone...now 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
