2. TODAY IN MY LIFE
DAY ONE OF MY 50th BIRTHDAY LONG WEEKEND! Not a complete slob-out on the first day though. I have a business proposal to complete and I'm expecting an electrician to replace the bathroom cord switch in the afternoon. Nevertheless, I will very much enjoy a weekend away from the Weekend Job.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Virile men have a "glow" in their scrotum, but because it's continually there from puberty, they don't notice it. It's only in middle-age as male potency declines that it becomes noticable by its' periods of absence. I can now distinguish between when it's there and when it isn't. Tadalafil artificially restores the glow for 2-3 days. Viagra incidentally, although more expensive, quicker to act and more intense, only works for 12 hours or so. This is why I prefer Tadalafil - you literally get more bang for your buck!
Because I have erectile dysfunction rather than impotency, the glow can be there without chemical assistance, particularly if I'm relaxed, wide awake, warm and comfortable and/or I receive a new erotic stimulus. If I had an extramarital relationship (not that I'm planning one!) I would probably be fine, at least at first - the thrill of "new flesh"!
When erections first started to become less than 24/7 reliable around 2008, it was for some time an embarrassing disappointment. I have come to accept it now. I am still able to meet missus' needs, and my mind is liberated to think about things other than the sexual to an extent it wasn't before.
