Practical Bought a bag of frozen peas to numb my husband’s sore testicles after his vasectomy. That night I cooked pea soup. I Knew a Woman Everything she had was better than everything the rest of us had. Not by a lot. But by enough. Married Love, 1 When we snuggle, my left hand finds purchase on his back cyst. My home button. Why I’m Switching Salons “We can put on a topcoat with glitter,” said the manicurist. “We all know how you feel about glitter.” Copulation Couplet —for the birds and other open-minded parties— Birds without penises do it like this: press vent to vent and pass the sperm, called “the cloacal…
