Is This Your First Time?

The same ultrasound technician has shoved a giant camera up my hooha 12 times now.  Twelve times, she's said you'll feel my fingers and then BAM.  She's fast, and she's good.  Don't get me wrong, I have no quarrel with her work.  Today, she was chatting with the lady in front of me.  "Miha, this time it will work."  She patted her on the shoulder.

For me it was "Is this your first scan?"  She asks me this almost every time.  It's not.  It never will be.  It certainly won't be every other time you ask.  I'd rather her ask me "How are you doing?" or "Nice day, right?"  I don't need her to call me miha or actually know my name, but it would be nice to feel like a person.
