In conversation with a good friend, he mentioned how relieved he was that his grandson seems to have reached a contented, benevalent place.

I must say I am shocked! I was dating this young lady and right before we were about to have sex, she says, “You know, I can get pregnant today or tomorrow, so if you have sex with me, there is a great possibility I could get pregnant.” But, like 98 percent of the male population, we are thinking of the days of yore, when everything was pretty much a guess.
