he really was.

mae lived until 1991, just after her 103rd birthday, and she was tickled pink in the 80s when condom ads were first on television. when she was young you *could not* talk about them at all, and she had quite a few friends who envied her lack of continual pregnancy and asked her secret, and all she could say was "well, ed takes care of that"!

they had a detached shed for the car, and she had to go out every morning first thing and sweep; unmarried couples would sneak into the shed for some privacy and often there'd be used condoms they'd discarded outside it. she said it was such a frowned on thing that she felt back then she'd just DIE if anyone came along and saw a used condom outside her garage.
