Drop ‘Em

French Word of the Day: la fesse (la fess)- buttocks

I’m sure you’re all looking at the word of the day and thinking, “Meghan, what?!”  You now understand how I felt when the nurse came into my exam room with a long needle and said, “Drop your pants.”

I responded the only way I knew how.  “I don’t think we’ve known each other long enough to take our relationship to that level.”

My face when the nurse came in.

My face when the nurse came in.

That’s right; today was menopause shot day.  It actually wasn’t that bad, so I think I’m finally becoming immune to needles.

The doctor who came in was really excited about my lupus.  He kept asking me questions about my past and sharing studies about lupus that the hospital had published.  At one point, he called it all “fascinating,” which is just how you want to hear your medical history described by a medical professional.

I won’t start to see the effects until a few weeks from now, but I will be able to drink properly on my birthday.  Three cheers for alcohol!  (I haven’t been able to drink more than a glass or two since September 2011.)

This is my 100th post.  I’m glad I was able to make it all about a deep and meaningful word.

About The Meghan

I'm a lupus survivor who spent a year and a half in France. Now, I'm trying to incorporate the best parts of French culture into an American lifestyle.
