The doctor of an 80-year-old woman had finally retired. Therefore, at the elderly lady’s 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 them, his eyes grew wide as he realized that the little old Grandmother had a prescription for birth control pills.

“Yes, doctor. They really help me sleep at night.”

“Mrs. Smith”, he said, flabbergasted, “I assure you there is absolutely NOTHING in these that could possibly help you sleep!”

The old lady reached out and patted the innocent, young doctor’s knee:

“Yes, dear. I understand. But believe me. They definitely help me sleep at night…”

“…You see, every morning, I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16-year-old granddaughter drinks!
