I had a great morning playing tennis for almost four hours. Two sets of mixed doubles and two more of singles with two different guys. One guy has a counter and he burned over 1800 calories after three sets so I figured I went over 2000 playing the second set. Now I eat some high calorie food like cherry pie.
After the third set, one guy said his wife was a rep for a drug company selling what he called old men's drugs including cialis and a drug with testosterone. I digress but it's nice to be retired while your wife still works. Anyway, he said cialis made older guys who don't need it feel like 25 although I said I had read it doesn't make a difference for guys without E.D. He said he hadn't used it himself to prove this theory. Then the other guy, who's 73, said his girlfriend was coming over tonight and he was popping cialis, which he called "hamburger helper.''
And then the first guy said, "Are you guys going to talk about erections or play more tennis?' Cracked me up.
This reminded me that on a blog this week, a blogger used the word "impotence'' and I said that so old-fashioned because once the drug companies figured out they would make money on it, they repackaged it as "E.D.'' and took the taboo out of it with millions of dollars worth of ads. I guess our conversation proved my point. Can't imagine guys having that conversation years ago. The drug companies turned it into a blood flow problem imstead of something to do with your manhood. Times change.
