Blow-by-blow account of dad’s latest bladder infection on the phone last night.

He’s tended to my mother after a stroke for almost a year now, his fortitude and dedication investing him with a noble, heroic status in the eyes of his children.

So why must he ruin the aura by referring to his “willy”?

You’re almost 90, I want to tell him; for pity’s sake call it a penis.

But that’s a conversation I guess you can never have with your father, whatever his age.
