The Golden Chalice

The Queen had to go see the good Dr. today for her now every two week checkup. Everything is 5X5 and all systems are nominal.

You remember how Mary Poppin's measuring tape said...Mary Poppin's Practically Perfect in Every Way? Well the good Dr.'s measuring tape today said "Shamu", or so The Queen feels. The X-man's heartbeat cruising at a smooth 142...like we needed an ultrasound to determine flavor.

HRHTDP accompanied her to this particular appointment and stole the show in the waiting room watching and feeling the baby kick through The Queen's shirt, giggling at each punch. The other ladies in the queue were completely and comically entertained.

The other two were with me, they had gone to sleep on the way in and i was hankerin' for a Frosty...Wendy's style. Have you seen the new flavors??? They're looking for a larger piece of the ice cream market. I digress.

Anyhoo, the good Dr. needed a "sample"... yeah, that kind. So, Queen and Princess remove themselves to the restroom. Here's the conversation as relayed to me by an eyewitness/ participant...

The moment they walked into the room...

"Where do i get the cup Mama?" Surprised, the Queen points to the appropriate drawer...

"WOW!! There's ALOT of cups in here!" as HRHTDP retrieves one.

The cup is passed and...filled. Lid installed... and when she went to put it back on the sink, HRH states to The Queen's chagrin, "Mama, i wanna hold it!" As cup is re-passed with paper towel, HRHTDP quickly discards the towel and barehands the chalice.

"Mama, your pee pee's WARM!"

The Queen laughs as she runs the water in the sink, "Well baby, EVERYBODY'S peepee is warm when it comes out."

HRHTDP cocks her head and replies, "The only time I pee pee in a cup is when i don't feel good."

As they return to to the exam room, the chalice carried by HRH in both hands like a servant carrying a crown from the Royal throneroom...she sees all the baby pictures on the wall and casually, "Oh! Those are cute babies!"

Upon entrance to The Room, she gently sets the golden goblet by the Good Dr.'s notes and finds her seat, content to observe the remainder of the proceedings.

It never ceases to amaze how observant she is.

Cole wanted to use one of those cups to get a drink one time and I had to explain to him that those weren't to drink out of.

... a friend of mine once gave me a set of "sample" glasses.... not sure if they were for what you described or not, but they were about the size of shotglasses and had measuring information on the sides....
