If some one was to, say lean over, and look at the computer monitor in my cubicle, he may immediately jump to the conclusion that I am up to no good!
Why else would people send me emails regarding supply of condoms?!
I confess that I have solicited for condoms via email – in fact, I asked for about 1500 of them!
And no, I do not have such a healthy libido as to consume that many prophylactics (I wish!).
Rest assured that the request, directed to the Malaysian AIDS Council, was for a good cause. These condoms are to be distributed (discreetly and upon request only) to some of the eligible patients in the Infectious Diseases Clinic. We have been doing this for years and the last consignment from the MAC is almost used up (it took us close to 1.5 years to distribute about 1000 condoms).
So, the next time you see me lugging a huge bag of condoms in the hospital, don’t stare and don’t ask.
