This shaggy story has been going all over the internet the last couple of months. The author is unknown. This particular version was sent to me by a dear friend from California. I am sending it to my own SO to see if I live through the night.
A middle-aged woman seemed timid as she visited her gynecologist. “Come now,” coaxed the doctor, “you’ve been seeing me for years! There’s nothing you can’t tell me.”
“This one’s kind of strange…”said the woman.
“Let me be the judge of that,” the doctor replied.
“Well,” said the woman, “Yesterday I went to the bathroom in the morning and I heard a plink-plink in the toilet. When I looked down, the water was full of pennies.”
“Mmmm, I see.” said the doctor.
“That afternoon I went again and there were nickels in the bowl.”
“Uh-huh.” the doctor said as he got more and more interested in her story.
“That night,” she went on, “there were dimes and this morning there were quarters! You’ve got to tell me what’s wrong with me!” She implored. “I’m scared out of my wits!”
The gynecologist put a comforting hand on her shoulder. “There, there, it’s nothing to be frightened about…”
“You’re simply going through the change.”
