Wet and Dry

A little thing just the other evening - the amdram Christmas dinner (don't ask!). A friend of mine leant forward, and in a carrying voice in a very quiet pub, asks: Aren't you DRY after the menopause? In the pindropping silence from the next table, I say NOPE. But, she persists, everything I read says you get DRY when you get older. Absolutely not at all, I assure her. By now, no-one is eating, everyone is listening, and I'm cracking up. But, she bellows, well into her stride, are you taking HRT? Nope, says I. So why aren't you DRY? She can't believe her ears, nor could the entire (mixed company) pub. I really can't tell her why I'm not DRY, having regaled everyone with the fact that I don't use artificial lubrication, it's all homemade. Crying with laughter by now...
