One of my favorite things in the whole world is going to the doctor once a year for a physical exam. Other than the overall physical discomfort of the whole thing, my very favorite part is when the office assistant leads you into the room and asks you to strip off all of your clothes (but you can leave your socks on, if you want, she says) and sit on the table with a paper vest on in place of a shirt, with your bottom half covered by a paper blanket. Then you get to sit there and sit there and sit there for at least a minimum of 20 minutes waiting for the doctor to come in and see you.

If it were a more perfect world we would all wear paper clothes each day, because first of all they are disposable (don't need to wash them)! And secondly they are INCREDIBLY warm and cozy. There is nothing like cuddling up on a cold winter's morning in a paper vest and a paper blanket. If there was a fireplace in the doctors office it would have been absolutely perfect. The most unfortunate part of this whole business is that I won't get to do this again for a whole YEAR!
