My 10-year-old son had a well check appointment with our pediatrician last week. All was going well—he’s healthy, growing normally, and learning properly.

Then comes the time of the appointment when the doctor asks, “Do you have any questions for me?”

My son responds, “I saw on a commercial that I’m supposed to ask my doctor if Viagra is right for me. Is it right for me?”

Loooong awkward, stunned silence.

I burst out laughing but god bless the doctor because she kept it together.

“Um that’s a good question,” our doctor responds. “No, it’s not right for you. Viagra is a medicine for, um, grandpas. So, no, it’s not right for you.”

Well done, doc.

My son responds, “Oh, ok.”

Little did I know my 8-year-old, who is next to me under the guise of playing on my phone, is recording the whole thing to use as proof to win a bet.

About a month ago my son and his dad were watching football when a Viagra commercial came on and my son asked, “Dad should I ask my doctor if Viagra is right for me?” His father’s response was, “If you do I’ll give you 50 bucks.” Ok, so he’s not winning parent of the year, but it was hilarious.

After the appointment, my ex-husband asked how it went. I told him our son is in perfect health and he owes him $50 for their bet. I added that he should tip our little one, too, because she recorded the audio. He agreed.

This week I wish you hilarious moments you can share with everyone … and 50 bucks!
