                                                     GRANDMA'S BIRTH CONTROL


A doctor who had been seeing an 80-year-old woman for most of her life retired. At her next checkup, the new doctor reviewed the list of her medications. Looking through them, his eyes widened as he realized she had a prescription for birth control pills.

"Mrs. Smith, do you realize these are birth control pills?"

"Yes, they help me sleep at night."

"I assure you, there is nothing in them that could possibly help you sleep."

She reached over and patted the young doctor's knee. "Yes, dear, I know that. But every morning I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16-year-old granddaughter drinks. And believe me, it helps me sleep at night."
