Medieval erectile dysfunction, or failed barn sex (!)

Disclaimer: At the risk of offending some readers who may suffer from this condition, I am still going to post this article. It’s an account of how people used to deal with the very private, or not so private, matters of bedroom challenges. Proceed with caution. Keep your comments on topic and cordial – this is a family blog. (Just sayin’) 😛

Do you remember the post How to have sex with your husband 1960s style? History is quite fascinating, isn’t it…and in hindsight, quite humorous. 🙂

I came across another interesting historical read on a platform called narratively called The Distinguished Medieval Penis Investigators.

Huh.

The opening paragraph beings like this:

Let’s lighten up a little with some fun

My doom and gloom posts lately are irking me so let’s change gears.

A number of humorous and droll topics have crossed my path in recent days. I thought I’d share. 😉

For instance:

If you don’t have a dog and you’re under curfew but you have a husband, putting him on a leash to walk him will earn you a $1500 fine in Quebec.

“Husbands don’t qualify as pets,” the authorities said. 😂

Perhaps it’s time to get a dog, then… ?

A day in the life of lockdown Toronto 🇨🇦

I went to my mom’s this week and stayed a couple of nights (she’s been part of our bubble since the beginning of covid). Today, she took me to a suburban town to a store which imports some goods from Germany. They also have a deli and a bakery where they make prepared food inhouse. For instance, cabbage rolls. (I bought some). 😛

I was excited to go out. I’ve been sitting in either my mom’s house, or my own, typing, purging, cooking or doing other domestic things.

Meh.

So a trip to a new/different store was exciting! 🙄 For the occasion I even put on actual clothes. Yippie! 😄

Real clothes instead of leggings or yoga wear.

He took it out

Those of you who have watched Seinfeld through the ’90s will remember the episode where Elaine told Jerry that her date last night ‘took it out’. Jerry was perplexed and kept asking her what he took out. 😄

She tried to explain:

“He took…” she said.

“…it….” she continued.

“…out.” 😃

Anyway, my *episode* on this blog today has to do with a similar topic, only it involves a dog, and not a man or a date. Hah. 🙃

Disclaimer: if natural, biological urges in animals offend you, I suggest you stop reading now. 😉

Muddy puppy and missing bacon*

*Ironically, these two events are not related. 🙂

Mid-afternoon on Christmas Eve, I let the puppy out for a pee in the backyard.

It was muddy. Cool and wet, but not cold and frozen.

After a while I wanted to let puppy back in. But he didn’t come when I called. I opened the back door and looked for him. There he was, at he back of the yard, digging up the rhubarb.

Sigh.

How come no one told me Beagles are diggers? There are so many holes in my yard…

Morning chit chat

My ear hurts. The one I can still hear out of. This sucks, but also doesn’t. Perhaps today will be a welcome quiet day for me? I could write more, since there’s nothing else to do these days, and without hearing things like people talking, I may be able to concentrate better…

I woke with the ear pain this morning. I am not prone to ear infections at all. I can clearly remember only one ear infection ever, and that was some years ago. Never in childhood or any other time when I was sick with Meningitis. Which is interesting because the illness caused me to lose much of my hearing…

Boots, selfies, and some link-love

There was a day last week when I told my partner that we needed to get out of the house so I could wear my new boots.

He said ‘it would be so nice to go out for dinner”.

We haven’t been out to eat since before covid and even then, it was usually at a sports bar after a kid’s hockey game.

I don’t typically wear those boots to the rink… sigh.
