A Shot In The Arm For Anatomical Awareness

| Related | February 6, 2015

(I’d had a physical earlier in the day, which ended with me getting an HPV shot. Later at home this conversation happens.)

Me: *to my dad* “I got stabbed in the arm today.”

Dad: “What?!”

Me: “I got stabbed in the arm today.”

Mom: “She had a physical.”

Me: “Got an HPV shot.”

Dad: “So that’s where they inject it, huh?”

(Mom gives a short laugh.)

Mom: “What, did you think they just injected it right into the cervix?”

(Dad makes a vague noise.)

Mom: “Well, I guess when they make a shot for prostate cancer that’s where they’ll inject it.”

Me: “Right into the cervix.”
