Cialis (the Viagra for those who want something different from Viagra)

I know this is totally unrelated, but I just heard a story that involves sex but isn't sexy, and so is interesting without being titillating, and basically, I just feel compelled to repeat it....and based on who told it to me, it was already so attenuated, so "a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend" that I figured that if I re-told it here, no one would likely recognize themselves, and no one would likely object.

Here goes - A 40-something woman, upon stopping home from work to pick up something she had left at home, heard her answering machine beeping. Thinking nothing of it, she hit "play" only to find that the local pharmacy had left a message for said woman's husband: "Hello, Mr. So-and-so, this is XYZ Pharmacy, calling to tell you that your prescription for Cialisis ready for pick up." If you didn't know already, Cialis is a drug for erectyle disfunction. If you look at the link to the website, you'll see a middle-aged couple acting lovingly toward one-another. You'll also see it clearly spelled out that this drug is for being "ready when you want during any 36 hour period." (yikes!) Anyway, the thing was, this woman and her husband had not been having much sex in the past few years. In fact, they hadn't had sex since before 9/11/2001 (I don't know what the relevance of the date is, only that it is an easy date to remember). Bottom line: Wife thinks Husband is having an affair and confronts him. He claims it was for her, in case they decided to try having sex again. Apparently, this became grounds for divorce - and was used in court as proof of infidelity.

Urban legend? I don't know. But an interesting tale, nonetheless, in the age of this new class of drugs for "ED", God bless you Bob Dole. I can't imagine that the husband wasn't having an affair, given the set of facts - but a prescription for Cialis does seem like a spotty bit of evidence to me in a divorce case.

Any thoughts?

Funny, but since I work for the company that makes Viagra, he's taking the wrong drug!
