Doctors and the Pants

Today was a bit awkward. I'm not sure if pureblooded (or even some half-blooded) wizards have to go to any sort of muggle doctor at any time. I suppose they wouldn't; since their results of blood tests would come back saying, "They're sick! Dying! Go give them lollipops and pretend everything's all right!" Bah. I dunno. I'll have to look into it. Whenever they take my blood, the results are normal. Most of the time. I don't think it's something to be ashamed of. Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be. Hm.

Anyway, this whole doctor thing was because my sister and I had to go for a well visit. We haven't been to one in years. Really pathetic. All they do is knock against your knees, make sure you're not going to kill yourself... That sort of thing. I went into a different room than my sister when it was time to get started of course. And then we were told to change into gowns, which are really disgusting because there's been so many bodies in them. Ugh. I went along with it anyway. The doctor started talking about all kinds of pointless things. I've heard them all before. "Never get into a car with a stranger. Don't even come within a distance that they could grab you." Well, that'd be helpful if there weren't better ways to do it. Like making their head burst into flames... Or something. Ha. Then the doctor asked if I had ever been touched in any wrong way, and after staring at her for a minute, I just told her no. I mean, I suppose if Vernon puts his hand on your shoulder, you shouldn't consider that to be wrong? Ah well. I think my shoulder is still not as clean as it could have been.

Eventually, the doctor asked if she could go below, which is something that I really didn't want happening. So, I just said no to that as well. The doctor was good about it, and shrugged it off and just said, "When you're ready to, that will be fine." I wasn't sure if she had listened to what I had said at first, but she just left it at what she had said, and didn't dare to ask me again. Good of her, too. The way she said, "When you're ready to," was like having some ... sex talk with a parent. Awkward. Just staring. At least it's over now. After that bit, I just had to get some blood taken. The nurse who was doing that treated me like a four-year-old. She started saying, "Oh! It will only feel like a pinch!" I've heard that before... I swear, I glared at her during the moments that she was trying to find which arm would be best to take the blood from. And then she just jabbed it in, and oddly enough, I didn't get to even wince. Whatever. My arm bruised slightly. I have a blue-ish purple spot on my arm. Ha.

Turns out that my sister didn't deny the request to be checked "below", and she came out complaining about her boobs. Nice. Vernon, who had come along for no true reason, didn't seem to mind. I was just annoyed, though.

We didn't go straight home after that. We went shopping instead.

We saw some pants at the beginning. Petunia wanted them, but Vernon said that they cost too much, and so, she couldn't have them. She pouted about it, but eventually just became quiet about it and bought other things. I bought some chocolate for Remus, a jacket, some shoes, and a hat. Vernon bought a case of muggle tools -- hammer, wrench, that sort of thing. I don't see why he chose that of all things, but I suppose it was just what he wanted. Petunia bought a lot of tops,a skirt, and two pairs of shoes. We were about to leave when we saw a woman looking at the pants that Petunia had wanted. Petunia turned red, and Vernon tried to say a million things, but failed to say any of them. I just sat back and watched. Petunia went over to the woman and snatched away the pants, and at that point I thought that we were going to be booted out. But nothing happened, except for the woman snatching them back and shouting at Petunia some other language. I was starting to feel guilty for not pulling Petunia away, but it was just ... I dunno. I didn't want to pull her away. I'm not sure why.

Petunia and the woman started to argue, but I don't think they even understood each other. And this was all getting really stupid. Petunia wasn't thinking, by the look of it. The two girls continued to argue, then finally the woman tossed her arms up, screaming something, then just walked away, leaving the pants with Petunia. I was thinking that someone was going too come and scream at us for making a scene. No one did, though. Well, at least no one said anything. Everyone seemed to be staring at Petunia. Vernon bought the pants for Petunia, and I just continued to stand there, wondering if, when we left the store, we'd be attacked. It went well enough, though. I mean, we got out without being attacked. And such. I think I'll turn red every time I see Petunia wearing those pants, though...

Overall, I'd have to say that today was fairly amusing; though I wish that it could have been more of an ... innocent day? Hm. How do I put it?

PS; Do not touch me. I can kick and bite and hit. And scream. Mustn't forget that last one.
