There is so much to talk about these days…did I mention, I don’t even know where to begin? How about here? These are the most random things folks have asked or mentioned to me of late…I swear. I can’t make this stuff up!
If I haven’t already addressed these, I will soon address them on one of my social media platforms; i.e., my podcast, blogpost, or YouTube Channel……Here we go:
I Swear. I Can’t Make This Stuff Up:
- Random husband mentions to me the other day, while his wife had stepped out to use the restroom; “Dr. Angela, you were right! I was watching some porn the other day, don’t tell my wife, and they all had full bush!!! All the women had bush! It’s definitely back!”
- Received a direct message from a friend of mine asking my opinion on an article he had recently come across for supplements to make your vagina taste “semi-fruity.” REALLY?!?!?!? My response, “vagina should taste like vagina.”
- A friend of mine, who happens to be pregnant and hispanic, shared a few wives’ tales that are common beliefs among hispanic mommies. I was in the office STARVING as usual, so she was gracious enough to give me her snack pack of Ritz Bitz. All of a sudden everyone was in an uproar telling me that if I took food from a pregnant woman I would end up with a stye on my eye. WHO KNEW?!?!? Anyway, while I have previously written about pregnancy wives’ tales, I didn’t know they differed amongst cultures. This should be fun! By the way, I did NOT end up with anything on my eye.
- Recently diagnosed a 70 year old with chlamydia. CONDOMS ANYONE? Folks in these adult communities are “doin’ it and doin’ it, and doin’ it well.” Just when you thought your grandparents weren’t having sex; think again. While these folks aren’t concerned about pregnancy, they should be concerned about STIs(sexually transmitted infections)! The sti rate in this population has increased significantly over the past few years. Forget monogamy; these folks are going out with a BANG(no pun intended)!
So happy to be back and am looking forward to catching up. Based on the above, you can see that we’ve got A LOT of catching up to do!
This is just the beginning!
Until next time,
Look Better. Feel Better. Be Better.
