Lately it seems, I have noticed or maybe been made more aware of the changes throughout my life. Some introspection? What precipitated this, I have no idea but comparisons have been running wild through my brain.
The newest, latest eye opener concerns babies. Those little bundles of crying, slobbering, pooping machines that are sometimes a parents joy; other times the reason for loss of sleep and mountains of frustration.
I was stumbling around on the web, wandering down different paths and reading what one link provided and then being guided down another path and onto a different subject. I wandered so long that I began to think I should have left a trail of bread crumbs to find my way back. I was enjoying my trip around the web.
Turkey basters. Nothing exciting about turkey basters you say? Oh, but I thought the same thing. I kept reading and to my amazement my jaw dropped to my toes when I discovered there were other uses for a turkey baster then that November holiday involving a big bird and an oven.
Artificial insemination? Gollllllllllllllllly. A 'do it yourself" method of artificially inseminating that would save one just a ton of money and for the cost of a plastic syringe, you could be handling your own bundle of fun wrapped in either a pink or blue blanket in 9 months. All this without ever having to ever wash some males' shorts and cook dinner for him or share your checking account.
Big eyed I read on. You can even go to eHow and search for the instructions and there they are, all typed up neatly. All you need is the turkey baster and a printer to print the instructions.
Oh, one other small item. Sperm. You will need a male for this donation. Once that has been arranged, you're pretty much set to become a parent.
This is not a newly discovered procedure and to that I have to say "Where have I been all these years that I didn't know this".
Thanksgiving will never be the same for me!
