I have the tv on. DS9 is one room away.

A condom commercial comes on. Talking about how much "closer" you can be with the new brand of condom.

I cannot get to the remote fast enough. As soon as I mute, DS says, "really mom? really?"

I apologetically mumble, "Yeah, I know. That was a little much."

DS, "um, yeah."

Life goes on. I remember when a tampon commercial was horrifying and it was all euphemisms and running water.

I understand. There is nothing as awkward as sitting with my girls and H when a commercial about ED comes one. DD17 response: Well, that's more than I needed to know.

To add: I think it is more awkward for H. He just sits in silence.

If you didn't speak English or watched the ED commercials with the sound off, you'd think Viagra helped you learn to dance and Cialis was a bath product.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

To continue in the theme of awkward I was watching "A year in highlights" kind of show last night. Got to watch Miley twerk all over Robin Thicke in barely any clothes with giant bears or something ridiculous like that… with my 87 year old grandmother. All she had to say was "Well would you look at that?"
