An article about the good natured ribbing that goes on between two life long friends. Sometimes it can go below the belt, but in this case, it's all about "Dry" Humor.

This had been posted in "stories" but we've decided it belongs in articles.

SENIOR CITIZEN TALK
 
"DRY HUMOR" 
 
My sweetie and I were out with some friends one night last week and I had just come back to the table from the men’s room. Sweetie caught my glance as I glanced at the front of my trousers and we both began to giggle. Of course that didn’t escape the notice of our friends (lets call them Steve and Maggie) and they inquired as to what it was that they had missed. Well, it’s a bit of a delicate subject, but they are good friends, so I thought I’d have a little fun with them. 
 
“I sometimes have this problem of dribbling after I pee…. and sometimes it gets my trousers wet and it’s embarrassing.” (Maybe I should mention, they are REALLY CLOSE friends and no subject is out of bonds for us) Anyway, I was telling them that when I’m going out to dinner or to have a few drinks and do a little dancing, I’ve taken to wearing a Maxi pad in the front of my shorts to soak up the excess and keep my pants dry. 
 
“Well,” says my friend Steve, “you might be doing it wrong.   How do you pee.”
 
Mind you, I’m 66 years old. I’ve been doing this for a while, I kinda consider myself an expert at it. So, I thought I’d play along with him for a while. We often joke around about some pretty strange things. “Well,” I said, “when I’m out in public, I step up to the urinal, but when I’m at home, I sit down on the stool, which allows me to shake it a little harder and longer without splattering myself in the face or soaking my whole pant leg.”  Now I'm expecting some kind of a reaction to the comment about splattering myself in the fact, but he completely lets that go by.
 
“Out in the public?” says he, “just when do you pee out in public?”
 
At this point, I can see the glimmer in his eye and I know he’s having a great time with me. So I decide to play along and see if I can’t turn the tables on him. “Well, I don’t mean that I pee out in public, but when I go into a public bathroom, I don’t like to sit on the stools. You never know what you might catch and Sweetie has warned me about bringing home pets."  That comment elicits a little giggle out of Sweetie and I continue.  "Besides, some of these men’s rooms are pretty darn grubby. What I was trying to say is that when I am out in the public and have to use the bathroom, I don’t use the stool unless it’s a dire emergency”  
 
“Well, when you stand up to the urinal how do you get to it?” Says my friend. 
 
“Get to what?”  
 
“How do you get to your package?”  
 
“What package, I’m not carrying any package, what are you talking about?”
 
“I’m talking about you going to pee, when you step up to the urinal and you unzip your fly, then what do you do?”
 
“Well, I haul it out and let it fly.”
 
“Yes,” he said, “I know that, but do you go over the top or through the slot?”
 
“Over the top of what? What slot? Are we in the same bathroom? I don’t know what slot you’re talking about.”
 
“I’m talking about the slot in the front of your under shorts, do you pull your package through that slot, or over the top of the waste band?”
 
Well, at this point we were both laughing pretty hard, which isn’t always the best of situations when you’re already experiencing problems with a damp spot on the front of your trousers. Luckily, I had just come back from the room in question and there wasn’t much to be concerned about.   Anyway, when we were finally able to stop laughing uncontrollably, my friend proceeds to explain that he used to have a similar problem.
 
He says, “When that used to happen to me, I figured out that it was because I was going over the top and my shorts were so tight that it was cutting off the flow before I finished. You know that we just don’t have the pressure that we had in our younger days.” He went on to say that since he started going through the slot, “his problem had been solved.” So, he says, “I’m still  asking the same question. Are you going over the top, or through the slot?”
 
Well, I had to admit that I had been going “over the top” and that “yes, at times I had felt that my shorts might have been just a little snug.”
 
“Well,” he says, “next time you go pee, try going through the slot and if that works, take two aspirin and call me in the morning. I might be able to solve some of your other complaints just as easily.”
 
Thank you ever so much Doctor Steve.
