A very frustrated man visits his doctor. ?Doc, you?ve gotta help me! My wife
just isn?t interested in sex anymore. Haven?t you got a pill or something I can
?Look, I can?t prescribe anything??
?Doc, we?ve been friends for years. Have you ever seen me this upset? I?m
desperate! I can?t think; I can?t concentrate; my life is going utterly to hell!
You?ve got to help me.?
The doctor opens his desk drawer and removes a small bottle of pills.
?Ordinarily, I wouldn?t do this. These are experimental; the tests so far
indicate that they?re VERY powerful. Don?t give her more than ONE, understand?
?I don?t know, doc. She?s awfully cold.?
?One. No more. In her coffee. Okay??
?Um? okay.? He thanks the doc and heads for home where his wife has dinner
waiting. When dinner is finished, she goes to the kitchen to bring dessert. In
fumbling haste, pulls the pills from his pocket and drops one into his wife?s
coffee. He thinks for a moment, hesitates, then drops in a second pill. And then
he begins to worry. The doctor did say they were powerful. Then an inspiration
strikes? he drops one pill into his own coffee. His wife returns and they enjoy
their dessert and coffee. Sure enough, a few minutes after they finish, his wife
shudders a little, sighs deeply and heavily, and a strange look enters her eyes.
In a near-whisper and in a tone of voice he has never heard her use before, she
says, ?I need a man??
His eyes glitter, and his hands tremble as he replies, ?Me too.?
