[QUOTE=canio6;854074]only grown men have testicles? Really? Yeah, about that buddy....[/QUOTE]
Yeah, was going to note that, but have a funny story to tell.
I started to lose my hair very early on ("grass doesn't grow on a busy street" - my bald grandfather... one of 'em). This girl I was dating before Mrs. FW (obv.) was a night person. I'd been lamenting the final stage of hair loss as I was then about to finally buzz it all the fuck off (great decision, BTW), and she mentioned that maybe I could set my unconscious mind to work and re-grow my hair. All sorts of fanciful notions, that one had. Said people used such methods to stop smoking, lose weight, whatever. So I'm drifting off to sleep with that in mind and she's reading a music mag, and she cracks up laughing.
"What's so funny," I mumble.
"Oh, I was just reading this article about this blues musician, and I looked at the picture of him. Look at the guy's package... he has balls the size of onions! Why is it that old guys' balls get bigger?" So she's laughing to herself about the guy's enormous balls, and instead of going to sleep thinking about hair re-growing, I go to sleep thinking about... bigger balls.
Not sayin' it worked.
Not sayin' it didn't.

Ah, that makes sense. I was thinking "Grown" as in 18...modern adult age. I need more coffee.

What kind of onions are we talking here? Yellow? Large yellow?
Since we're desecrating Saoirse's journal anyway, I have a testicular story also. Well it's not exactly mine.
My ex's family was quite open about sex and nudity, not that the kids embraced it at all. The parents would often kick the kids out to hang with their friends, so the parents could have loud sex. Sometimes they didn't kick them out. Sometimes they walked around nekkid. One day at the dinner table, middle son says, "Mom, one of my testicles is a good handful size, but the other one is pretty small!" I'm not sure I'm remembering the wording right, but it was clear he believed his heirloom tomato was the proper size. No one ever found out what became of the testicles (though I don't think anyone who has heard this story really wants to know).
[QUOTE=namelesswonder;854111]What kind of onions are we talking here? [/QUOTE]
Okay, that's what I was picturing.
But not TOO hard. I don't want to think about them while I sleep. Unless I think about sweet vidalia breasts?
Hey, that was a pretty neat transition from tornado shelters to testicles.
Hold on, back up, stop the presses...
A boys testicles descend into the scrotum in infancy!
Like birth to 6months is the norm.
I've wiped a lot of naked boy infant bottoms.
Baby boys certainly have descended testicles and 'stuff' going on down there.
And... if the testicles do not descend there is a PROBLEM that probably needs treatment.
Hold on, I'm out of this conversation. I can't work with cori talking about scrotums.
Swingin' free since as far back as I can remember.
Nobody here got kicked in the nuts on the playground in elementary school? (They were "nuts" then, they're "onions" now, LOL!)
Mmmm... sweet salty nuts.
Who feels snacky! :p
Great... now I want roasted almonds. =/
