    The doctor, who had been seeing an 80-year-old woman for most of her life,
    finally retired. At her next checkup, the new doctor told her to bring a
    list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her. As the young
    doctor was looking through these, his eyes grew wide as he realized she has
    a prescription for birth control pills. "Mrs. Smith, do you realize these
    are BIRTH CONTROL pills?!?" "Yes, they help me sleep at night." "Mrs. Smith,
    I assure you there is absolutely NOTHING these that could possibly help you
    sleep!" She reached out and patted the young Doctor's knee. "Yes,dear, I
    know that. But every morning, I grind one up and mix it in the glass of
    orange juice that my 16 year old grand daughter drinks...And believe me, it
    helps me sleep at night!"
