I was in the hospital following my cataract surgery, woozy from the sedative. My husband Robert held my hand, attentive to the nurse who was reading us a checklist of postoperative instructions.
"Normal daily activity is fine, such as walking or light reading. Nothing strenuous or jarring for one week, such as lifting heavy weights, bending all the way over, jogging..." she read in a crisp, clear voice.
Suddenly her voice lowered, becoming girlish and tentative. "Sex..." she paused, then whispered, "Do you want to know about sex?"
"Yes! Read the part about sex!" Robert and I almost yelled.
