Where Have I Been

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.

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!


  1. I'm surprised you've only just discovered this because the method has been used for years. It's very clever isn't it? I wonder who first thought of it?

  2. 'Tis a wondrous universe we inhabit.

  3. Ayak: I was always under the impression that couples paid 30,000 dollars and up for this procedure to be done by a doctor. Who DIY procedure that gives the same
