My two uteri
Because I bought a teaching model of the brain a few years ago, I am on the mailing list of the An.atomica1 Chart Compa.ny. The ACC is a supplier of medical models and charts, and I am always happy when my catalogue arrives. Despite the fact that the content is always pretty much the same–there don’t appear to be seasonal fashions in medical models. Anyway, the new catalogue came last week and I was flipping through it when lo! I found exactly the same model of the uterus that my RE’s office has! It’s known as uterus /ovaries with pathologies, and I bet many of you have seen it. It’s the one with all the nasty looking junk on it. It occurred to me that I could have my very own uterus/ ovaries with pathologies for a mere $72! And when I see my RE on the 26th, and he starts explaining where he found various things, I could be like, show me on MY uterus! Mine isn’t covered with grubby finger prints and little pen marks. And he would blink at me in confusion, and I would whip out my model! It would be SUPER FUNNY.
On the next page were the human pregnancy models. Made of life-like material! So I was thinking, if I never get pregnant, I can still have some fetal development of my very own. For only $530! Then I got very sad and cried. Maybe I’ll buy an Understanding Erectile Dysfunction Anatomical Chart to cheer myself up. It’s on sale.
