Like every woman I adore having my yearly physical. The stirups, the crappy paper that sticks to my legs, and the doctor that wants to chat with me while feeling up my boobs. I love it. I’m kidding. I detest going and only go for the prescription refills.
But here was my “favorite” part of the whole appointment.
Doctor: So I think you should take your multi-vitamin more regularly . . .for the folic acid
Doctor: For the baby
Me: What baby?
Doctor: You know, for when you have one
Me: What baby? I live with my college roommate, we have house plants
Doctor: Well as you know folic acid is important for babies
Me: I’m not having one any time soon
Doctor: You never know, we just want you to be prepared
Okay so I get it right? Folic Acid = Healthy Baby. But on the list of other things we can add to “Healthy Baby” list is not being a chain smoking alcoholic who likes to chew on lead based toys and having sex with strange men. But hey lets just start with a multi-vitamin mmkay?
