The Dr's office waiting room was busy that day. I had an appointment to talk about a male pattern baldness issue, a friend of mine was having. There were a couple of ladies with 2 plus year old terrorists in training laying waste to the waiting area. The "Moms" were too busy talking to be bothered with squalling rug rats running all crazy. I was seriously thinking about disregarding the bowling ball growing up between my ears and insisting that I get a vasectomy instead, and two hours ago isn't fast enough. The two moms were both talking to each other at the same time and oblivious to anything around them One suddenly asked; "What exactly is the best birth control pill there is. I could not miss this chance, I spoke loudly and clearly and stated, "The answer to that question is the easiest there is. The best birth control pill there is happens to be an aspirin = held firmly between the knees."
