Parenting is the ultimate gamble. We have kids, mostly, as a side effect; chickens coming home to roost. Outside the slight of hand there’s no need for sex to be so rewarding. Sex is the perfect shortchange!
I asked my dad why he wanted children. He didn’t. We have that kind of relationship. Honest.
It’s OK for my genes not to compete in the next cohort. My sisters, brothers or someone’s I’ll never know will. Am not afraid of what will become of my trash/possessions. Some android will read this and remember that I was here.
