EW. Just.... EW.

It's finally happened. After growing up with lawyer parents and being with Matt through three years of law school, I've finally heard the grossest legal term ever.

Are you ready for it? Get your visualization pants on:

The Fertile Octogenarian.

I'm sorry, but when I'm in pain, I have to share it with the world.

No one should have to hear that phrase.

I tried to read the Wikipedia definition, but my ears started buzzing and my eyes kept involuntarily wandering off the screen.

Barf. Aroo.

And ditto with Terri. Hats off to Matt and now I know what my friend Krystal is going through! (She just started law school.)

Marcia,

PLEASE MAKE IT GO AWAY!

Gross. In an old wrinkly boobs way. Like "there's something about mary."

e-liz said...

Oh no. No. I can't handle it.

neal said...

what do you mean? that sounds hot.... in the "someone you know must be in barbri right now, telling you the joys of RAP" kind of way........ ;-)

Well, ok, in trying to read the definition, I couldn't care less about it, but the phrase doesn't turn me off that much. While I'd (a) rather not be fertile in my 80s and (b) kind of don't want to think about old wrinkly balls, I'd still like to be able and interested in being intimate in 50- to 60-something years. Don't you?

I think I found my new screen name!

Virenda said...

Okay the definition confuses me with all those words but I'm feeling the name.

Fertile octogenarian... Yeah. Weird.

My bro-in law is a lawyer so I'm going to force him RIGHT NOW to explain to me in stupid terms what it means.

Lena said...

I totally followed all that. I should be a lawyer, don't you think?

I think this makes me a Fertile Unitarian by the way.

Wow. After 2 years of combing the Internet for fertility info, I've never come across that one. The very idea pisses me off royally, even though it's just a theory. Maybe the Fertile Octogenarian and Slothful Executor can hook up and create evil babies.
