Day 38, June 26

No blog on menopause would be complete without a discussion of sex.  When a husband and wife have been married as long as Larry and I have been, sex takes on a shorthand form.

Our conversations go something like this:

Larry: "Aaaargh?"  (Do you want to have sex?)

Me:  "Aaar."  (Okay.)

Larry:  "Uugh uugh."  (Well, take your clothes off.)

Me:  "Aaar."  (Okay.)

With a minimum of grunting, he's communicated his needs and I've given my acquiesence.  It's a system that has taken 39 years to refine.  A few more years and we'll have it down to a raise of the eyebrows and a twitching of the nose.   Ain't communication a wonderful thing?


  1. Even more wonderful is the perfect groove....everyone knows exactly what everyone else needs/loves/enjoys............nudge-nudge-wink-wink----rock on Sistah!

  2. You are cracking me up. Very funny post today.
