Stick Hunt

Mr. W and I argued for several days about whether or not to POAS. He said no - absolutely not - for the same reasons EB's DH did. I said I just wanted to know. That's all. And yes, I know they can be inaccurate at this stage -both ways.

So for 2 days I begged and begged Super Doc to bring home some sticks from work. No. No. No. Finally, I announced I was headed to the store to buy some. Whereupon he caved. (I knew he would.) "You're not buying something I already have at work." Uhm, duh? So off we went (at night, when no one would see) to get the sticks.

Or not.

This turned out to be an exercise in futility. Oh, and a big fat eye-opener for Super Doc, who has just learned a few exciting things about his employees:

1) They're all raiding company supplies.
2) Pee sticks are a secret commodity to be hidden & hoarded.
3) When you use or hoard the last one, you're too embarrassed to tell anyone to order more, so you just leave empty boxes/vials around until someone notices. Like the boss. Who is...too embarrassed to tell anyone to order more. And doesn't even know who they order them from.
4) Don't expect them all to tell you at once they're trying to get knocked up, too. Just start hiring NOW to cover all of those maternity leaves.


  1. Oh what a coincidence! Wow. I wish you could POAS for me! I promised I wouldn't POAS before the test. If it works I am peeing on about 1000! Wait, that is totally futile!

    Good luck K. I'm here with you all the way.

  2. That is hysterical :) LOL....but the real question, did you get a stick?

  3. Snort. I'm still giggling. Funniest post I've read in a long time.

    And you're taking the frustration much better than I would be! Please tell me you went and bought some on the way home!

  4. That is too funny!! It gives a whole new meaning to raiding the supply closet.

    Thinking lots of good thoughts for you.

  5. That is so funny - I too am hanging in suspense here!

  6. LOL - go buy peesticks!!!!

    Fingers crossed.


  7. Oh my gosh! I too admit I was laughing as I read this. OF COURSE people are stealing pee sticks. I just told my husband you can pay as much as $14 for a 2-pack (or you can go to the dollar store). Wow. Yup, time to put the pee sticks behind lock and key! So...did you go to the store to buy one?

  8. you're killing me over here! hope all is going PERFECTLY
    and I have been thinking about you like crazy and hoping for you.


  9. I was giggling the whole way through the post. Very amusing.
