Call me the dutch sniper
Hey you. Thanks for listening. You picked a perfect time to sit down and have a beer with me. I know this place doesn’t look like much, but it’s been crazy. I guess you know how that feels. A schedule that fills faster then time goes by. Crazy.
Now that I’ve got you here
The reason why I called you is because I wanted to let you know… How do I say this. I wanted to tell you that my girlfriend and me are taking things to the next level.
We decided that she would stop taking the pill and we’ll ‘see-what-happens. Now, I got a pretty good idea what’s goin to happen.
I dont think I’ll be a bad dad. Might drop him/her once/twice perhaps but I mean, I’m a pretty okay person.
She took her last one friday. Five days ago. Yeah, ofcourse I’m scared.
I dont think I’ll be a bad dad. Might drop him/her once/twice perhaps but I mean, I’m a pretty okay person. I’m not the smartest person, but certainly not the dumbest. And I’ve got at least 9 months to read up on all that stuff.
It’s just that, I don’t like poop and I love sleep. That might be a problem
Fear not, young papawan
I guess fear is something worth talking about. Because fear paralyses you. Not you specificly. You got balls of steel. But some other people. Right? wink wink
Why don’t people leave there job when they’re unhappy. Because they’re scared they won’t find anything else. Or that they’ll make less or get to work with unpleasant peiple. Whatever the reason. They freeze.
I guess it could be like that with kids as well for some people.
For me, money in some way, was the reason for saying that I wasn’t ready. I think it’s really important that if you make a kid, it doesn’t starve. I feel pretty strong about that.
And if you’re thinking ‘I dont feel like cloning myself a mini-me because I’m scared that it will starve’, this would be a great place for some solid advice from a 30-year old. It would be. But in all honesty, if they’re disconnecting your internet and the tax man is chasing your ass down the block and you dont know how to pay him, dont get a baby. It might starve and you know how I feel about that.
Play god – a little bit
How did we make ‘the choice’. Wel, it didn’t happen overnight. But in all honesty, we’ve only been together for two years. Is that short? I don’t know. How long do you have to be together before you know them wel enough to know if you and him/her should create new life together. It’s only if you’re playing god a little bit.
Anyway, she started it. I guess this talk is more useful when I’m honest right? Seems like the right thing to do since you took the time to hear me out.
On one of our first dates she asked me if I wanted kids. That kinds freaked me out a bit because I’m pretty sure saying ‘no’ was a dealbreaker. But again, as the honest Abe that I am, I told her not right now. But some day.
And the more we talked about it, the more I warmed up to the idea.
