Why I Shouldn't Be Allowed to Have Children

Post by munsi » Sat Oct 23, 2010 2:46 pm

Great men are forged in the crucible of trying times. This has always been true, and it’s something everyone, on some level, understands.

Without great challenges, after all, how can we achieve glory? It’s only in tragedy that we learn who we truly are.

Which is why, when my son was born, I blinded him.

I knew overcoming this would teach him the self-reliance needed to succeed in this life.

And when Social Services later declared me an unfit parent and took him into foster care, I was overjoyed.

Blind, AND an orphan?

My son would surely grow up strong…

Dribble Dibs.
You're my quasi-ichthian angel, you're my half-amphibian queen...

Did you also name him Sue? (That reference may be too dated, so if you didn't get it, go listen to some Johnny Cash.)
