Sorry, kids, no Thoughtful Thursday this week.
Instead, I’ll recount a conversation I just had with my father.
Dad: Thanks for flying here to take care of your mother.
Me: Sure. This is when it’s tough to be an only child.
Dad: Sorry about that. We tried to give you a little brother or sister, but she couldn’t do it.
Dad: We even went to a fertility specialist. My counts were low too, but that wasn’t the problem.
Blaaaargh! Female factor and male factor! Finally my suspicions are confirmed. I knew that my mother wasn’t telling me the whole story.
Vindication doesn’t feel as good as I thought it would.
