Sentences you never thought you’d utter (1)

“Those weren’t my foreskins.”

(At dinner with an immmunologist who is researching why circumcision seems to help in preventing HIV transmission, by studying the cells of foreskins she collects from a public health program promoting circumcision… in Uganda… where the boys in the Niki program were circumcised last year. But it turns out Jen’s foreskins are from a different part of Uganda. Therefore, not foreskins with which I am, however peripherally, acquainted).
