Grandma's Birth Control The doctor, who had been seeing an 80-year-old woman for most of her life, finally retired. At her next checkup, the new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her. As the young doctor was looking through these, his eyes grew wide as he realized she has a prescription for birth control pills. "Mrs. Cohen, do you realize these are BIRTH CONTROL pills?!?" "Yes, they help me sleep at night." "Mrs. Cohen, I assure you there is absolutely NOTHING in these pills that could possibly help you sleep!" She reached out and patted the young Doctor's knee. "Yes, dear, I know that. But every morning, I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16 year old granddaughter drinks...And believe me ...it helps me sleep at night!"
