Ask Your Doctor

1 09 2009

I’ve been spending the last day trying to decide how to make my first blog post witty, insightful and relevant. I drew a blank, so instead I’m going to talk about erectile dysfunction.

First of all, not that I was ever particularly enamored of the song “Viva Las Vegas,” but “Viva Viagra”? Really?

But that’s secondary to my real focus here, which is: “Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for sex.”

I did not make that up.

Can you imagine that conversation? “Listen, honey, I’d really like to have sex with you, but first I need to consult with my physician.”

This is now my favorite disclaimer in an ED ad, narrowly edging out the warning to seek medical help if you have an erection that lasts more than 4 hours.

“Set the timer, honey!”

Also, am I the only person who thinks that maybe the couple in the Cialis commercial wouldn’t need medication if they just…I don’t know…sat in the same bathtub?

And there you have it. My first blog post, guaranteed to attract spammers aplenty in the comments. Score!

Stay tuned for my super-big rant about Super Why. Oh, yeah. You know you can’t wait.

Jen, found your blog today, quite by accident, I wanted to start with your first post, so I scrolled all the way back. Thank you for having the courage to share so much of your private life, thoughts and feelings. I know that humor helps. I know you have a strength deep within that you have not discovered yet, but you will. I am rooting for you and I am praying for you, Carlin and the kids. I love your first blog. Interesting topic!

Stereotypically, most men would tell their friends about the 4-hour erection before their doctors.

(Did I just say that?!)

Great to see you blogging!

Have already subscribed. Am your first commenter. And can hardly wait for the next one. Even if I wish you’d done blogger instead of WordPress. 😉
