WARNING: For Women Only... Men read at your own risk

Please tell me this has happed to you.

I had a OB/GYN appt. today. I remembered I had it this morning at 8:30. At 10:25 I arrived in the parking lot, and did a quick check to make sure I had everything before going inside the building. "Insurance card? check. Debit card? check." Great, I locked the doors and headed for the door.... "Shaved legs? Oh crap, I forgot to shave this morning. And let's just say, I needed to shave badly. So there I am, walking back to the car, getting into the car, and leaving. Where to? I don't know. All I know is that I can't go in there with hairy legs. "Ok, I'll cancel." No, I've waited months for this appt. "Ok, maybe my electric razor is in the glovebox." No. "Ok, I'll go buy a razor." Great, there is a CostPlus just a block down. I run in and the only thing they have are disposible razors. Seeing that razor burn is a factor, I grab the shaving cream. I stand there looking at the can, contemplating how I'm going to smuggle it into the doctors office so that I can shave. "In my purse" I say to myself. Then I proceed to put it into my purse and walk to the checkout stand.. "What the heck are you doing?" Crap I grabbed the can out of my purse seconds before arriving to the register, and put it on the belt to pay for it.
I checked out and head back to the dr's office. 10:32 am. Ok only 2 minutes late. I put one razor into my purse and also the shaving cream. I grab about 5 wipes, just in case there are no paper towels in the bathroom.
I walk in. I check in and head to the bathroom, hopeing they don't call my name while I'm in there.
I proceed to shave my legs, from the ankle up.. seeing that I was wearing boots, I was not about to take them off.
Done.
I look in the mirror. Ok, I've got shaving cream on my shirt and a speck on my hair. Don't ask me how that happened I don't know.
I wipe it away, and leave the bathroom.
Mission Accomplished.

I'm happy to report that this has not happened to me. But I admire your determination to take charge of the situation! (And I am laughing my a** off right now!!!) I would have probably cancelled, or spent several minutes just prior to exam time apologizing repeatedly for the hairy legs... neither approach is nearly as brave and daring as yours. Bravo!
