My Father, and His Highly Toned Uterus

My parents babysat for us on Thursday night, and while we were out they ordered thai food. They had never had it before, so they ordered two of the most popular items on the menu. They were both pleased with their dinner, but later on that evening my dad got an upset stomach. He had difficulty sleeping that night due to his abdominal ailments, so he decided to take a nap on Friday while my mom and I took Sam and Lucy to the Little Jumping Bean. He was awake when we got home, and sipping from a mug. He informed me that when we went to the store later we would have to buy more tea bags, since he had used them all. My mind ran through the contents of our cabinets, since the only tea I thought we had was loose leaf. And then the I remembered. The only tea we had in bag form was something I bought at the health food store. It was supposed to stimulate uterine contractions and help get my labor started.

I didn't have the heart to tell him.

Well? Did it work for him?

Lol! Are you sure he didn't have any of the tea with the Thai food?

I was concerned that the tea was adding to his abdominal discomfort. He was ok by later the afternoon, though.
