A Bit of Useless Information

It's been a busy couple of days trying to get back in the swing of real life in addition to being swamped at work, so I haven't really felt like posting, however, while laying on a really hard x-ray table at the doctor's office today, one of those "moments" just hit me.

I busted out laughing and then thought....oh.. I have to blog that. LOL.

What "moment," you're thinking?

Oh the moment when the x-ray tech chuckled and said, "You have glitter on your legs."

I was like, I have, huh? What? Okay....I do not put "glitter" on my legs. I put regular ol' Aveeno radiant skin lotion on my legs after shaving this morning but I saw no such glitter.

Well, a bit later when she made me roll over, I caught a glimpse of my knee under the x-ray lamp and my word if that x-ray lamp didn't make it sparkle to high heaven.

After she went out to take the x-ray, I was laying there looking up at the ceiling and I just couldn't help myself. I started snickering. (Then I made myself stop cuz I didn't want her to think I was crazy. Like crazier than putting glitter on my legs. HAHA.)

While it could be worse....like this post I read awhile back that for some reason pops into my memory..........I would still like to just inform you all that if you are ever going to get an x-ray and you don't want to be glittered up under the light....keep the Aveeno Radiant Skin Lotion in the bottle that day. Cuz while it doesn't look glittery under normal lighting, under rare circumstances, you will shine like the stars, baby!

Oh and the thought that went through my head that made me snicker??? I'm glad she's not a guy. How embarrassing. Oh well. But it could always be worse. HAHA.

By the way, I haven't done anything to my knee, but it started snapping at me every time I try to straighten it and has been causing a great deal of aggravation and pain for about a week now. Not sure what is going on...hence the doctor visit and x-ray.


  1. I think that is EXCELLENT info. I had no idea! If it ever happens again, you should be like..."No, that's just my radiant skin. What, your skin doesn't glitter? :)

  2. *LOL*! I like shelley's comment too. :o) You glitter on girl!

    I didn't get to read to other "sparkle" post until now! Thanks for the laugh! I got a good one out of that. *lol* :o)

  4. LOL!! That's funny! And I too agree with Shelley... how does she know you don't just glitter!? I mean, what nerve to just assume it wasn't your natural sking!? lol!! My knee has been killing me lately. I went out to buy a brace and it helps some. But I'm afraid I'm going to have to get an x-ray and I'm really scared they are going to tell me I can't run!!

  5. That is funny! "Radiant", might have been a clue, you think? Ha,Ha!


Please tell me what you think...but keep it spam free and friendly, or it will be deleted. Thanks! =)
