Erectile Dysfunction. (This Blog is Safe for Work.)

Tags: , , ,

Let’s talk about erectile dysfunctionI Remember When Golf Was a Family Game..

I’m disgusted, so we’re all going to suffer (this is worse than a bad blog… it’s an uncomfortably bad blog).

For the record, I’m not disgusted by erectile dysfunction.  These things happen (so I hear… ).

I’m disgusted by the fact I can’t watch golf on TV without being bombarded with ads about ED (which is evidently the hip way to say erectile dysfunction… which by the way, I’m uncomfortable saying in any form).

I’m going to snap if I see one more “When the moment is right” commercial.

I can handle watching it the first time.  Maybe even 3 times.  But I can’t take hundreds of times during an athletic event.

I don’t think it’s asking too much to watch golf with my daughter without seeing these types of ads.

Especially when they’re in such high rotation (it’s like a Michael Jackson video on MTV in 1983).

It’s troubling.

Actually, it gets more and more troubling as I get older (both the ads and the condition).

Why can’t my daughter grow up in a world without knowing about ED?

Why am I put in a  position where I have to discuss this “condition” with her and she’s not even 10 years old?

I just want to watch a few minutes of golf in peace and quiet.  I don’t want to watch couples lock eyes and embrace as they repaint their living room.

Just for the record:  I’ve painted a lot of rooms and it isn’t “that” much fun.

Plus, if you have ED, don’t you know it?

It’s not like you’re watching golf and say “Hey, wait a second.  That happens to me!”

Do you really need 189 commercials before you think…

…“I may need to speak with my doctor”

I’m all for being open and honest about any issue, but there’s also a time and a place.

And my Sunday afternoons aren’t it.

    At least the singing ones seem to have stopped. The guys grinning and singing about it were the worst……a whole garage full of them. *shudder*

    And what’s with the double bathtub? Maybe if they got in the same bathtub together, his “E” would become “Functional.”

    Thanks for our morning laugh over breakfast!! Hubby appreciated the humor even more than I did. By the way, I remember now why I don’t want to be a principal. This past month I supervised a practicum class for teachers getting their masters degree in special ed. They taught students with disabilities for a month and I practiced my “Principal” skills (which are very limited or non existent). Between observing teachers, evaluating lesson plans, dealing with an unhappy parent and an giving grades to teacher who doesn’t think he has to do the same work as the others, I do not want to be a principal on a full time basis. There is definitely a star in heaven for you!

    My husband is an emotional disturbed teacher with a classroom. Before he had a classroom he was a consultant that traveled from school to school. His title was “ED Consultant”. We’ve gotten some good laughs out of it, especially with people that aren’t in education. They ask (after hearing his title) “What exactly does that mean?” like he can help them out with their (or their husband’s) ED.

    Tee hee… just think of it as revenge for all those years of commercials discussing that “not so fresh feeling” we ladies had to endure (and still do to some extent, though some parts of the advertising world has gotten smarter in the last 20 years).

    It was as uncomfortable for me to watch those with my brothers in the room as it is for you to watch the ED commercials with your daughter around. Not that two wrongs make a right…

    How about the commercials for the “his and hers” lubricants?

    Now, I think the ones with Smilin’ Bob are funny..the first time I see them. I agree, though. Years ago, I had to explain what a douche was to my very young son. Looking back, I should have just pointed to his father, my ex-husband. :D

    That last comment of mine was probably inappropriate. (The heat has gotten to me!) Sorry!

    Being in the heat of getting ready for school (all tech directors hate the first quarter, just ask them and duck as they throw a mouse at you)……@Pam provided the only laugh – with even a snort today! Funny stuff.
