Time To Laugh!

Here is one of my embarassing moments.
I dare you to share yours!

A few years back there was a lot of talk on TV about some new medications. I never listen carefully to commercials and have learned I shouldn't talk about them either.

It was around this time that my daughter Patty-Jo had most of the family to her home for Thanksgiving Dinner. There must have been about 25 of us.

Five of my teen aged grandsons were there, and after dinner as we sat around the table talking, one of the boys, around 19 at that time told me that he was going bald, then pulled his hair off of his forehead to show me.

I didn't know what to say, but remembered something about a commercial I heard, so I said, "you don't need to worry about it. There are new medications to make your hair grow now. I think one is called Viagra."

At this, the five boys eyes nearly popped out of their heads as they tried to stifle their mirth. They were making a variety of unpleasant raspberry sounds as well.

I was perplexed at their odd behavior until Patty-Jo leaned toward me and said, "Mother, Viagra is used for penile dysfunction."
I squawked, "WHAT?"

Then in my embarassment, my brain shut down and I replied, "well I knew it was used to make something grow!"

At this, the boys left the house, and I went to the kitchen for some water.
As I looked out the kitchen window, there were the boys standing on the lawn in five different stages of hysteria.

I no longer give medical advice.
