Cashier: What adorable Spiderman band-aids! Your kids are going to love them!
I was checking out at a Publix several weeks back, and there was a screaming baby irritating the crap out of me. I guess I let it show on my face because the cashier asked if I was okay when it was my turn. I told her that I was fine, but that I wasn’t a fan of children or something like that. I forget my words exactly. She looked at me kinda weird, rang up my items, and off I went. It wasn’t until later that I figured out why she looked at me so strangely. I was buying the ingriedents to make my Sugar Gliders nightly meal – which consists mainly of baby food products. I can only imagine the horrible things she was thinking about me. 🙂
Haha! She’s probably calling child services on you right now!
It’s so weird to me that I could possibly be the age to have children. I don’t really have maternal feelings, and I don’t feel anywhere near that old! You too?
I have no desire at this time to mother anything other than Quantum, Countess, and possibly an occassional house plant. Children require a certain amount of responsiblity that I am not ready to partake in. Thankfully, Phil and I are on the same page.
Every now and again I feel the marternal feelings rise, and then I promptly beat them down with a bat. There is just too much I want to see and do, and selfish or not, I don’t want to be hindered by a screaming, needy human.
Maybe one day. Just not now.
Somehow I missed your response, Gabby. I love spending time w/ friends’ kids but I can’t imagine the endless responsibility of actually having one!
