Countdown to 40 - Day 12

I went ahead and got my annual physical scheduled for the Monday after my birthday. One of the things recommended when you hit 40 is to get the prostate examined - but now I am hearing you can wait until you are 50. Whatever the case might be I will be going to see the family doc fully expecting the glove treatment. A friend told me that 70% of dudes get an erection when they are getting their prostate checked out, and that is what I am most frightened about. Seriously I really don't want a late birthday present. I might be one of the dudes in the 30% for all I know but I think I might take some precautions just in case I do get a visit from the boner fairy. My plan is to wear chaps. The doctor will have access to the parts he needs to access and if I do get a fresh supply of wood I can at least hide it with the chaps. What do you think?
Talk to you later.

Well, I'm pretty sure I popped one while undergoing my little procedure last week. I say "pretty sure" because everything was numb and weird-feeling down there anyway, and I told myself before going in that I was not going to look down there unless I absolutely had to.

Anyway, nothing to be ashamed of. Go for it you old goat!

A duck sighting? So it takes prostate and boner talk to get you to comment. Good to know.

if 70% get a hard on you're actually weird if you don't.

theres no worries about accidental arousal with pap tests

The chaps are a great idea, but don't go dressed as the guy in the picture because he might think you're the gayest cowboy ever, just praying for an erection.

I think the medical profession uses the phrase, when you've seen one you've seen them all. So quit fretting over such a little thing...grins.
I think I've caught up with the journey towards 40.... been off sick for a few days and felt really sorry for myself. Hope to resume normal practice (koff koff) as soon as possible.

I think you should totally rock those chaps.

You of all people should know that I can't resist a good boner discussion Shife.

What Kylie said. And I hear those mammograms are just sweet tons of fun, too.
