Would you honestly spend money decorating a place that you know no one wants to be in, and if they have to be there, for as short a time period as possible? I can’t blame them.
MariaV saysDecember 10, 2008 at 8:55 am
I disagree. I think you succeded.

Congratulations Bossy! Let this serve as a reminder for every reader to make an appointment for a mammogram and pap smear! (except of course those readers that are male! ~make YOUR health appointment today too!)

Seems to me that at least 2 people sitting next to each other will have to touch knees.What’s antiseptic about that?

BOSSY, thanks for posting that you even did this. Our dear family friend just had a DOUBLE mastectomy on Monday. The Cancer was found by a routine Mammo. PLEASE BOSSY readers..GET YOUR BOOBIES checked!
Emily saysDecember 10, 2008 at 11:35 am
it also does nothing to excite you about having your boobies squashed in a vice!

I have to say, I have the most beautiful mammogram office complete with pink lady volunteers and warmed up gowns. It makes all the smushing much more bearable.
Lesley saysDecember 10, 2008 at 12:07 pm
I totally think you DID capture the feeling of that room. My boobs hurt just looking at that picture.
Sewmouse saysDecember 10, 2008 at 1:07 pm
I have had ONE mammogram in my life. It hurt so much I was in pain for a WEEK after. Sewmouse has made a deal with her MD.
The day that he is willing to put his scrotum on that glass plate and let them squish his “boys” down to the size of a fajita tortilla – then I’ll go right behind him and have another mammogram. Everyone has to die from something. I am NOT putting myself through that torture ever again.
Reeb saysDecember 10, 2008 at 1:09 pm
You captured the poorly laid-out nature of the room nicely. The chair second from left, tucked behind the adjacent one. Sheesh. Who’d ever sit there? What’d the rest of the room look like?
Momo Fali saysDecember 10, 2008 at 2:55 pm
Nope, you definitely didn’t fail. My screen smells of rubbing alcohol.
Andrea's Sweet Life saysDecember 10, 2008 at 3:07 pm
Bossy scheduled a mammogram AND a cleanse in the SAME week? Bossy sure enjoys torture.
Although, KUDOS to Bossy for the mammogram – a truly necessary evil.
Meredith saysDecember 10, 2008 at 3:58 pm
Au contraire. You nailed it.
Kelly at The Glass Dragonfly saysDecember 10, 2008 at 4:02 pm
I think you captured it perfectly.

Bossy captured my mammogram waiting room. Maybe everyone’s mammogram waiting room, really.
bossy\'s friend martha\'s sister saysDecember 10, 2008 at 6:32 pm
You probably heard about my experience…. the good news is ….all normal breast tissue…. My waiting room was really nice… herbal tea and white fluffy robes. Find a place with the latest in technology and you will be amazed!
Ellen saysDecember 10, 2008 at 8:54 pm
Not a failure at all on your part. Instead a reminder that I skipped my 2008 boob squishing torture session. I would like to know where I should call to schedule my 2009 session which I will try not to skip at bossy’s friend martha’s sister goes. The place with the fluffy robes and herbal tea.
Say What? saysDecember 11, 2008 at 1:25 am
Nothing says “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” like the flattening of the breasts! (unless, of course, one is making Chicken Cordon Bleu for guests)
Yes, where is this lovely oasis that has fluffy robes and herbal tea? The place I go has the dreaded paper robes and cold, cold plates!
Still, everyone schedule your boob squish so you can be sure to be here for the next “Guess and press” of Bossy’s! (which btw, was kind of a pun today wasn’t it?)
