Friday Funnies! I’m Introduced to Mr. Acupuncture!

friday funnies
How was your week? Good I hope. Are you ready for some giggles? I always am.
If you have a family friendly funny to share please feel free to link it up below. It can be a funny joke, picture, story, video, etc.
Let’s Spread Some Funny!
I thought it would be fun to tell you about my acupuncture visit I had the other day. So here it goes.
 I actually made this appointment because I didn’t want to take the traditional route when it came to my skin cancer (basil cell). With the recommendation of a friend I made an appointment with a doctor that specializes in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.
My visit went something like this. I show up on time and start to fill out my information. Within minutes we are chit chatting about EVERYTHING. She proceeds to tell me that I should be a stand up comedian and before we know it her NEXT appointment shows up. Oops! I guess we both had the gift of gab. Very quickly we shuffle off to the examining room. I lay down and she starts rubbing different spots of my body with rubbing alcohol. In my mind I’m REALLY hoping that these aren’t all the places she’s going to be sticking needles. Alas, they were. Bam! Bam! Bam! She was like a power house acupuncturist. Before I knew what hit me she was done. And before I could ask her anything she told me to “relax”, dimmed the lights and walked out the door.
So here’s your mental picture. There I am, laying on my back. Both fists are clenched and are resting on my stomach. At this point I’m not exactly sure where all the needles have been placed and it’s too dark to see. I’m afraid to move. No clock, no watch, I have no idea what time it is. What I do know is that my nose itches. Now my forehead. Soon after my foot starts to cramp and I have to pee!  I looked around for the hidden camera because I was sure that it had to be somewhere. Did I mention I’ve never had acupuncture before? I did manage to scratch my nose without poking myself in the eye but by the time she got back (half hour later) I thought my bladder was going to explode. Did I relax? You know, I’m going to have to say no on that one.
So when I was checking out I told her I wish she would have taken a picture of me to show you gals and she quickly said, “Oh next time you come in we just stick some needles in you real quick and take picture.” Um…Gee, Thanks! Can’t wait!
So there you have it. My acupuncture story. Do you have one?


  1. Goodness~ I would say you were definitely in a pickle :)
    I haven't ever had acupuncture but my stepmom loves it.... I don't know how anyone could relax getting needles stuck in you and then told...BE STILL???
