Put a Zipper on It
Ever since Victoria's NG tube fell out the other day, I have been dreading shoving it back in. I became even more nervous when I realized I did not have the highly coveted gell needed to make the tube slide easily down her little baby throat. When I called the doctor they told me I could use any water soluable based product.
"Is there anything specific I should use?" I asked.
"KY lubricant works really well" the nurse told me.
Well, ok then, whatever works.
So, I took Anastasia with me to the CVS and asked where the KY lubricant was. The guy looked at me kind of strangely.
"Oh, it's not for me", I blurted out, "it's for my daughter."
His eyes widened.
"No, not for this daughter. She's eight already. I need it for my two year old." I bumbled on.
The pharmacist picked up the phone, even though it hadn't rung, and looked quickly away from me.
Finally I realized that I really needed to stuff the entire bottle of KY jelly in my mouth to keep myself from saying anymore.
Later on, Catherine apparently thought the lubricant was lip gloss, but that's a whole other story.
Have any of you ever put your foot in your mouth?
