Dealing with the cashier might still be awkward

Now this is why I read Slate. Otherwise, I'm not sure I would've found out that Viagra might soon be available over the counter.

I don't know why such news would make me excited. It's not like, uh, I'd have to use it or anything. At least hopefully not for the next ten years or so. Ha-ha! You know what I'm sayin'! No, I'm happy for Ann Arbor, because Pfizer provides a lot of jobs here. And I'm excited for the consumer. Yay, commerce!

Really, it's good news for all other products available at drugstores, because you know a guy's going to buy a magazine, bag of chips, or gallon of milk to distract attention from the Viagra.

Just make sure you don't get that mouth spray mixed up with your breath freshener or Chloraseptic. Or maybe this will help your breath or sore throat, too. Who knows? Only one way to find out, I suppose.

Hey, I meant that I'd be calling my sister, the pharmacist, to ask her. Okay? Perv.

I'm curious how Dr. Lil' Sis will take this news, by the way, as peddling Viagra to older military veterans is a frequent source of amusement (and skeeved-out horror) for her. Oh, the stories she can tell over Thanksgiving dinner! It's great. Pass the stuffing!
