The Family Jewels

Last night during tae kwon do class, I was sparring with another student when she threw a front turning kick at me, missed my chest guard, and delivered her foot straight to my pubic bone.

I doubled over in pain and crawled into the dressing room so people couldn't hear my howls of anguish.

Someone was dispatched to get some ice packs. I spent the next 20 minutes lying on the floor, groaning and holding a bag of ice to my crotch.

Yes, she had kicked me right in the middle of the Source of All Life.

It was half an hour before I could walk again.

By that point, I'd seen the humor in the situation. On my way home, I took a fresh ice pack and shoved it down the front of my pants.

"Hey, nice bulge," remarked one of the other girls.

The girl who'd kicked me apologized profusely. "It's ok," I said. "I didn't really want to have kids anyway." Then had to assure her I was teasing when I saw the horrified look on her face.

Men aren't the only ones with sensitive spots. I'm definitely going to have a HUGE bruise down there.
