As a woman reading this, I found it refreshing. I never really stopped to think about a man’s relationship to his own body; I guess I never thought they were as “in tune” as women. Plus, this really made me laugh. It takes a serious issue and puts a humorous spin on it. And I think that ALL of us, male or female, can relate to “it’ll pass.” I just HAD to reblog this one.

Readers & Writers

I shouldn’t be writing this post. I’ve been musing undecidedly over whether to give a written birth to it from thought, mainly due to the explicitly personal nature of it – but I suppose that is what writing is all about.

For a few weeks now, one of my balls has been troubling me. When I say ‘balls’, yes, I mean testicles. And when I say ‘troubling’ me, I mean killing me.

I feel that now I’ve got that dreaded ‘T’ word out of the way, I can write through the rest of this post. The pain started a few weeks back. A dull ache – nothing to arouse too much concern. Having had an operation as a child on the very same ball, after a sporting accident, I did begin to wonder if something had gone balls up and left me in a sticky situation.

Nah. It’ll pass.
