I find it a little bit strange that I could tell you the date, time, and place Lump was conceived. Don't worry, I'll refrain, to keep the vomiting to a minimum. I don't know why, but I was thinking about this today, and it just weirds me out. I guess I just assumed that most people had maybe a general idea about when it happened, but couldn't give you the specifics. Some of casual research on my part seems to show otherwise. Apparently, several women in my circle can tell you when and where each of their children was conceived. For example, one woman conceived her third child in a hotel room while her first two children were asleep in the bed on the other side of the room. Hilarious? Yes. Weird that she knows that? Kinda.
From the perspective of someone's child, I dread the possiblity of finding out how I was conceived. I get that my parents had sex at one point in time, but I don't want to think about that. Seriously. I had a friend in high school whose mom told her the when and where of her conception, which seriously creeped her (and me!) out. Now that I know this information about our kid, I worry that I might slip up and tell it some day. If I were my kid, I would be mortified if I told myself about my conception. As the mom in this situation, I would prefer not knowing, for the safety of my future kid's sanity. I mean, with me and B as parents, I figure this kid's going to have enough therapy fodder by the time it's an adult, so the more I can eliminate, the better. Damn you, Taking Charge of Your Fertility for enabling me to know Lump's conception date! I'll be sending you the therapy bills.
