Conversations to avoid...

Dad called again last night with more laptop questions. We got everything sorted out and a decision made on which one we're building.

In the course of our conversation, he asked if I'd seen the moon the night before. I hadn't and he assured me that at 3 in the morning, it was amazing.

"What were you doing up at 3 in the morning, Dad?"

"When you're a man of a certain age, you make several trips to 'the men's room' during the night. Women have no idea!"

"I guess that goes right along with the insomnia that most women get around 50. At least men are sleeping when they're not making a quick trip to the men's room..."

I shouldn't have started down this path... I just knew it...

"Well, you haven't had to go to any of those 'men's appointments' where they have to figure out why you're in the men's room all the time. This nurse had this tube and she grabbed my..."

"Dad!"

"And then the dr. said maybe they ought to do the test again in case they didn't do it right..."

"Dad!"

"I'm just saying that you have no idea..."

"Yeah Dad, because for the past 30 years, everytime I've gone to the doctor for anything they start with a pelvic exam. Men don't have a clue..."

"Kidney stones... every passed one?"

"Three of them... you know them as your grand-daughters. Suck it up, Dad."

"I hope you're more sympathetic to TOG when he starts having these issues. You women have no idea..."

If only he had a son he could share these things with! Please tell me we're not the only father/daughter that has these converstations...

AG out!
