Busier and busier.

Today is Alan and Kate’s birthday (49 and 9), which means that when I finish the story I’m working on, I have to go downstairs and bake a cake, then make spaghetti and meatballs. Also, I should probably pay some bills. And do a lot of other stuff, but not spend much time blogging.

So here’s something to consider: INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Men who live in rural Indiana often use condoms incorrectly, according to a new study that Indiana University sex researchers say underscores the shortcomings of sex education in Indiana’s public schools. Almost half the 75 men statewide who answered the survey’s questions about their latest sexual encounters with women admitted waiting too long to put on a condom or taking it off too soon.

Next time someone snickers at the banana demonstration, just remember: In the Hoosier state, they need that training.

    the hoosier state may need that training, but not Fort Wayne.

    It seems that Men’s Health magazine rates Fort Wayne as 87th on a list of 100 cities, in terms of ‘erectile dysfunction’ (where #1 stands tall and proud, and #100 shrinks into a quiet corner somewhere) –

    so in these parts, worrying about how to put a condom on is a lot like putting the cart before the horse (so to speak!)

    Happy Birthday, Kate and Alan! (Ladies before gentlemen).

    Was Kate born on her dad’s birthday by accident, or did you opt to have her on this date? I ask that because sometimes people can choose a date to have labor induced if they go beyond their due date, etc. In my case, my first baby was born by C-section. I opted to have the second one delivered the same way. He was due April 16th, but we chose April 8th to have him since it was the day after Easter. It was easier to leave our daughter overnight at Grandma’s after we had Easter dinner.

    My two oldest brothers were born on the same day three years apart. We kids assumed my parents only had sex once a year.

    The coincidence of birthdays is entirely that. I don’t think Alan would have asked for a lifetime of Barbie cakes, but honestly, he doesn’t care. As the designated filler-out-of-forms, I have to be careful who gets the 56 and who gets the 96 on the spot for birthdays.

    Your family is almost exactly ten years older than my three member family. All I can say is, the next ten years will fly by before you know it.

    We know Indiana (and especially Ft. Wayne)is just about the fattest, dumbest, and most flacid state of the union. Now you say we’re also the most condom inept state as well. If it weren’t for my business I would move away to someplace thinner, smarter, and straighter.

    Also, I saw the interview with the former queen of Jordan. I had the same thoughts running through my head while watching her, but I just couldn’t put my finger on what and why she seemed so peculiar. Thanks for the insight. Dave B.

    Cool Mary – my two oldest brothers were born a year and four days apart. We could not come to that same conclusion, however, because there were too darned many kids in the family.

    Condoms, voting levers, bathroom faucets, noggins. Yeah, there’s a lot of things 75% of the men in Indiana don’t know how to use.
