Too much aural sex.

I'm surprised that in reference, she didn't mention it was 'all tied up'.

Old MD Girl said...

I hoped you warned her about the dangers of aural sex.

Packer said...

Nope, not even going there at all. Stay away and nobody will get hurt.

That's because she had her eustachian tubes tied to prevent pregnancy!

Heh. Yes. The fallopian tube. Facepalm.

I assume she didn't get this info from the google. At least I hope not.

Easy for you guys to say. I'm the one who has to sit there and keep a straight face when they say things like this.

We used to be able to re-stock medical supplies for the ambulance right from the ER. Years ago when we would have a new EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) on the ambulance we'd tell them to go get a fallopian tube from the ER cart. When they could not find one, or had no idea what they were looking for, we told them to ask the nurse for help. It worked just about 50% of the time.

I visited a patient in the hospital who had been given a lot of medicine for her pain. She mentioned she liked my necklace, which is a piece of polished stone of some sort. I thanked her and admitted I don't know what the stone is. "Oh," she said, "I think it's an oxycontin."

Allegedly true story from the early days of Air New Zealand, an airline on which they still hand out hard candies (on some flights, anyway) to help passengers clear their Eustacian tubes during descent: A steward was handing out the barley sugar candies and offered one to a young woman who asked what it was for. The steward responded "If you suck on it as the plane descends, it will clear your Fallopian tubes." A grey-haired male OBGYN in the seat behind her overheard this, and remarked in a thick German accent "Young man, if you can clear Fallopian tubes with barley sugars, you will become a very rich man!".

If fallopian tubes were in our ears, Hippocrates would have been a lot closer to right, 2000 years ago.
