Oh dear...and she had sharp objects near his head? Lucky he came back.


Extraordinary. it's amazing to hear these conversations and realise how weird the world we live in is compared to the rest of the developed world.


Oh, how I miss ol blighty..........sometimes :)


Wow, it amazes me how clueless, no I mean stupid, people really are. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that isn't how they do it. I would have said, "yeah, we went the test tube route because it is much more sterile then the cabbage patch!"

I stopped going to my hair stylist because she kept telling me all I needed to do to get PG was to have anal sex for a few minutes and then switch to vaginal sex because my post-anal orgasm would be so powerful that it would "suck all the little sperm right up there!" She swore this is how she conceived her son.

It was funny the first time she said it. But then every 8 weeks, she would ask if we had tried anal yet. When I replied in the negative, she'd cluck her tongue and say "Girl, what did I tell you?!"


I just came here from the stirrup queen... this is too funny. Sad, but funny. "Do they let you go visit them..." Not the brightest Crayola in the box, was she?
