My Brief Life as a Woman
As my wife and I sat on the couch one night this past winter, reading and half-watching the inevitable HGTV, I started sweating hard and my face got so fevered and flushed that I felt as if I were peering into an oven.

I turned to Deb and said, Man, Im having a wicked hot flash. And she said, Me, too. Then we laughed. You laugh a lot unless your hormones are making you cry when youre having menopause with your wife.

I was in the middle of treatment for an aggressive case of prostate cancer last winter, and it included a six-month course of hormone therapy. My Lupron shots suppressed testosterone, which is the fuel for prostate cancer.

1. I just had a hysterectomy, but my husband's
niacin regimen has been having the same effect on him for a while.

It's pretty funny, really.
