Suckers. If you want a permanent Other in your life, you have to give up the Illusion that you can still live as an individual.

I'm up for it when they are.

Companionship is a fucking STRUGGLE. Get used to it.

This.

You have to be SERIOUS about having a good time, without going so far as to be the patsy in a badwrong situation.

And who the hell wants to live as an individual?  I found that family life really agrees with me.  Just in time for the kids to start moving out on their own.

I actually had fleeting thoughts of being a stepparent, this year.

It...didn't seem terrible. Then again, I'm also convinced that I married Herb way too young at 24. Fuck, I still think I'm too young.

I had kids by 24.   :lulz:

I'm not even looking for normal.

I'm just looking for a particular brand of weird, and I can't seem to find it.

So.

When's the last time you got a really good look at THE WALL?  Because I know your brand of weird, and you ain't gonna find it at some hippie ass gallery opening.

I don't think I'm gonna find it at all, actually.

Not if you keep looking in the same places, no.

I am in danger of forming a rant on this subject.  I can feel it rubbing against the back of my sinus cavities.

There aren't any more places for me to go. I'm stuck in this town, and I've seen about all it has.

Balls.  There are millions of freaks in Portland.  All you have to do is screen out the lesser specimens, much as the screen in the shower stall floor traps all the horrible pounds of hair.  All that gets through is filthy water covered in funk.

And that's what we have to find for you.  Filthy goodness, covered in funk.

I think my pills are more effective when I'm sick, by the way.  Just saying.

You do seem to have more Holy™ than usual tonight.

Fuck.

Everyone waits so fucking long, these days.

I'm a little old fashioned, that way.  Have 'em as soon as you can, and don't worry about things like "affording it" or "being ready".  It is actually impossible for most people to do EITHER.

But now everyone waits until they're damn near 40 to have kids.  It ain't natural.

So did my parents.

I think that's why I know I was too young.

Then again, the shoggoth I have in the shape of a uterus doesn't seem to want to cook them properly, anyway. I was born to be that crazy aunt. You know...THAT ONE. The one with the mustache and pink lipstick.

I'm glad I had mine when I was younger. My original plan was to be done breeding by the time I was 25, but my biology didn't work with me on that one.

I was told, by my GYN that women are at their reproductive peak between 16-25. After that, the risk for disorders skyrockets, and you're better off just not even trying after 32 if you intend to have a complication-free pregnancy. Unfortunately, social "norms" dictates when women SHOULD give birth, not medical facts.

All appearances to the contrary, I'm a domestic creature. It's when I don't have someone to cook for and snuggle on the couch with that I get all crazy.

This is how I know it was a damn good idea to have kids. Little fuckers settled me RIGHT down.

I'd sure like to have the other half of that, too.

Never regret children. They make you a stronger person.
