    I'm a single male and past the point in life

    where I want a kid of my own. Friends keep having kids and I'm still stuck in the same old rutt. I had what some would refer to as a "baby scare" over the weekend. Thing is, I wasn't scared at all, I was excited. So many people who can't even take care of themselves have kids...

    I Don't Think It'll Happen

    I already gave one, a boy. Not that I wanted to do that so much. I was told, by a fortune teller, or so, I didn't go to see her, she came through me, spontanously, I don't know why. My own mother was sort of psychic, and even if some things are troubling still today, I don't know...

    Has Anyone Noticed

    There are a LOT of groups for people who wish they never had kids, and three for those who didn't and would like to have. I wonder if any of those chicks would lend me one.
