The doctor that had been seeing an 80-year-old woman for most of her life, had finally retired.
At her next checkup, her new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her.
As the young doctor was looking through these, his eyes grew wide as he realized she had a prescription for birth control pills.
“Mrs Smith, do you realize these are BIRTH CONTROL pills?”
“Yes, they help me to sleep at night.”
“Mrs Smith, I assure you there is absolutely NOTHING in these that could possibly help you sleep!”
She reached out and patted the young Doctor‘s knee.
Yes dear, I know that.
“But every morning, I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16-year old granddaughter drinks….. And believe me, it helps me sleep at night.”
