The "V" Bomb -

I will begin this post with a warning. If you do not like the terms of female reproduction organs this post may not be for you. With that being said I will continue with my story. At my Medical Terminology class on Tuesday something strange happened. We were studying suffixes and we got to the word centesis. Which means a surgical puncture to aspirate fluid. A lady then says, "Oh, like amniocentesis." My teacher agreed. There then was some talk of the pain and procedure of the amniocentesis. It is when a very large needle is inserted in a pregnant woman's belly to collect a sample of her amniotic fluid. Then from across the room, Alberto says, "Yeah, they did that to my mom, but the put it right in her vagina." Are you kidding me, he just dropped the "V" bomb. But it didn't stop there. The teacher began to explain the procedure again, assuring him that it must have been something else. But he continued to insist that was done to "my mom's vagina" He then went on to describe what went into his "mom's vagina". By this time I was ready for a camera crew to jump out and tell me I was being "punked". What guy, other that a gynecologists, would say the word vagina out loud multiple times. And what makes it even worse was the word vagina was used in the same sentence as "my mom." I believe it would have been as offense and awkward if he would have dropped the "F" bomb. But that is just me!

LOL! That guy is a freak! Really what kind of person wants to think of their mom and what a doctor put in her "V"? Much less talk about it in class in front of people they don't know? He seriously needs some help!

I prefer the word, "Pachingo."

Oh, no. My dad had a game when I was little called Pachinko. It was a chinese thing that hung on the wall and worked like the Price is Right game Plinko. You shot the ball up like in pinball and then it hit all the pegs on the way down and it had lights and sounds. That's too close to that. However, anything is better than the "v" word, in my opinion.

Hey, I just thought of this...
Why don't we call it something like the Valentine? We still keep the V which is important. Also, it goes along with Valentine's Day love theme. Not bad. This may be my new name for it.

Of course I will have to remind the girls that we don't give out our Valentine to everyone in the classroom. That would be important info.
