Walk the Talk

The seminar room was full of pregnant women and their spouses - an antenatal class was in full swing. The female instructor was teaching the women how to breathe properly during labor, and was advising the men of how to give the necessary assurance to their partners at this stage of childbirth.

She then said, "Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens your pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier."

She then addressed the men in the room, "Gentlemen, remember - you're both in this together; it wouldn't hurt you to go walking with your partner."

The room became very quiet as the men absorbed this information.

Then a man at the back of the room slowly raised his hand.

"Yes?" asked the instructor.

"I was just wondering. Is it all right if my wife carries a golf bag while we walk together?"
