Walking with Ivana and Donald

The room was full of pregnant women with their husbands.

The instructor said, “Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial – strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier.  Just pace yourself, make plenty of stops and try to stay on a soft surface, something like grass.”

“Gentlemen, remember — you’re in this together. It wouldn’t hurt you to go walking with her. In fact, that shared experience would be good for you both.”

The room suddenly became very quiet as the men absorbed this information.

After a few moments a man, Donald, at the back of the room, slowly raised his hand.

“Yes?” said the Instructor.

“I was just wondering.  Would it be all right if she carries a golf bag?”

Brings a tear to your eye, doesn’t it?

THIS LEVEL OF SENSITIVITY CAN’T BE TAUGHT.
