Who thought up this morning hard-on thing anyway, and why are we guys blessed with it? Sure sometimes it’s really pleasant to wake up feeling aroused raring to go, but if you’re not exactly a leisure morning person it really gets in the way. It’s a hassle if you’re bunking with your buddies — say hunting or fishing — and you get up in the morning with a stick in your undies. Did you ever try to hide it? That’s a trick. Where in the heck do you put it when it’s three times it’s usual size and hard as a rock? It’s not like no one else ever gets one, but I think it’s just not polite to flaunt your morning stiffy.
A couple of years ago a guy in Europe told me that the slang word for morning erection in one Scandinavian language was the same word as evening milk and cookes in another Scandinavian language. I can see where that could complicate international relations in some settings. Especially, if your bud over the border invites you to join him for a spot of tea and cookies in the evening. I’d politely decline.
Really, the morning salute is an assurance that it’s six o’clock and all is well. All systems are “go” and you can anticipate another great day.
