Go into the garage and lay your breast on the cold cement floor. Have someone put the car in reverse and park a tire on your breast. Have that friend leave the car in park and go for coffee. It's best to ask a male friend to do this because women just wouldn't have the heart to do it.
Well, Elaine - at least you didn't do what I did - those little steelie things they tape onto you to take the pictures? I don't know how it is in the states, but here in Canada, they are like little marbles, definitely 3 dimensional. I think they are some kind of orientation device to know which way is up in the xray. Yep, forgot to take mine off. Went back to work with all 4 of them still taped firmly into place. I guess that did explain the odd looks I got from my co-workers for the remainder of the day. Wasn't till I got ready for my bath that night that I realized why.
