New mom, Carolyn Gurewald, was headed for the door; coat on, car keys in hand – when she finally remembered where she had last seen her two-month-old daughter’s rectal thermometer.
“After searching high and low for forty-five minutes, I figured, ‘Well, I guess I’d better pop out to the thermometer store for one of them new butt thermometers’, until I remembered…‘Wait! Maybe it’s still in Brittney!’”
Sure enough, the thermometer, which had taken up residence in little Brittney’s hindquarters three days prior, had been left in by Gurewald’s absent-minded husband, Howie.
“She says I left it there but I don’t think…uhh….so,” said the well-nourished, slovenly man-of-the-trailer.
Baby Brittney, who had been running a slight fever, is ready to ‘up-n-go,’ according to Mrs. Gurewald.
