"Did it hurt?"
"No, not much" I answered bravely, being careful to not move too much, just in case.
"Oh, I heard it kills" she responded, sounding disappointed.
"Honestly, it’s not that bad," I lied. "Not as bad as I thought it would be"
I managed a smile, which was something of an achievement. It did hurt, like you would not believe. I was never going to admit that to anybody.
"It’s done now," she consoled. Then she hit a bump in the road and I screamed.
I couldn’t help it. I was still very tender after my vasectomy operation.
