Am I the only one who would feel ecstatic to discover I was sterile?

Condoms and birth control suck.

No, I'd also be pretty relieved to hear that you were sterile.

djZorbof: Am I the only one who would feel ecstatic to discover I was sterile?

NO. I have one daughter. I love her dearly. That being said, I am DONE. Unfortunately, since getting hit by lightning apparently doesn't work, someone's getting sterilized in the near future.

I vaguely remember having a milkman when I was about five years old in New Zealand. Is there anyone else alive that had one?

Wondered when anyone would comment about that. Subby is showing his/her age. We had a milkman back in Detroit in the 60s. Whenever anyone commented that "your kids all seem so different" Mom would tell them she had 5 different milkmen.

Here in lovely Mid-America there are still places with milk men. I recall one in Ohio in the 60's that used a horse. The horse knew what houses to stop at.
By the by, was the child named Thor or is that the father's answer when asked how he is feeling?

We had one up until about 1968. I remember the Daddy Longlegs that used to hang about inside the milk box.

Next year was Woodstock, and everything changed. You had to buy milk at the supermarket.

We used to have a milkman when I was a kid. Right up until I went to university in 1990 actually. There were still milkmen delivering in my neighbourhoods up to the point I left the country in 1993.

Some of my friends used to do the milk rounds. Getting up at 3am was a bit much for me, I stuck to the paper rounds where you only had to get up at 5am.

/still gets up at 5:30am

I had a milkman when I was young. We called him Dad.

This isn't the motorcyclist who got struck in the winky whilst taking a piss on the side of the road is it?
 
2007-09-27 06:52:30 AM
We didn't have a milkman, but my best friend's family did.

FTA: A man who was told he would never father a child after being hit by lightning is celebrating his partner becoming pregnant.

Every time I see something like this, I think, "He got his business partner pregnant?" "Partner" really sucks all the romance out of it, if you ask me.

/oh here, let me
//"that's what she said"
///"so does marriage"

WTF is a milkman?

Isn't it time to start blaming it on the mailman, or the pizza guy, or a jehova's witness? You know, someone who might actually show up at your house.

Nick Nostril: This isn't the motorcyclist who got struck in the winky whilst taking a piss on the side of the road is it?

Nope. This 'strike' happened four years ago.

This reminds me of when Kathy Lee Gifford first got pregnant (she's married to Frank Gifford). Don Meredith reportedly joked "I'm gonna shoot the sumbiatch that did this." When she was pregnant again, Meredith said, "I shot the wrong sumbiatch."

Wait a few years or you might regret the decision.

Essure, non-invasive permanent birth control for women. Less risk of complications than a vasectomy, and much less risk than a tubal ligation.
 
2007-09-27 07:47:40 AM
So a lightning strike thanked God for the fact that his wife is pregnant, and after that the man was presumed to be sterile?

I hope they fixed his mouth to look much better than the usual European smile.

Hobodeluxe: is their last name Farkle?

I wondered who else remembered that from "Laugh In." In case 90% of you are too young to remember, it was a recurring skit that featured two normal-looking people and their pack of freckled, wild-looking red headed kids. Somewhere in the middle of the skit would come out Dick Martin, with a crazy red wig, as their "next door neighbor and best friend, Fred Burfle."

//An old hippy, too.

This sounds like a goofy background to some cheesy Superhero story.

"His father struck by lightning, LightingLad was born with control over umm.. eletricity or some such. Soon to be a crappy movie that will in no way be accurate to the purile plotline in the comics."

I had one. But I grew up in NZ too. Also had a phone you had to crank the handle to reach the operator. My phone number was 250. Nobody over here believes me.

IdBeCrazyIf: Both of us are in the process of getting sterilized... NO MORE for us. One is plenty.

For the past 13 years we presumed I was infertile, primarily because (a) the doc said so and (b) we hadn't managed to make a child despite frequent (very fun) attempts. No birth control, nothing. Seemed like a done deal. As we had 3 children (one mine from a previous marriage, the other two adopted) we were fine with that and looking forward to our impending "freedom".

Then, after 13 years, wham! Pregnant. Hubby is now planning a trip to the doctor, just in case...

Just to pitch in on the anoymous forum:

1) I got "The Snip" in 2004 after two kids. For those guys wondering, the sex-life quality increased exponentially. No more pills, pull-outs or timings involved. W00t!

2) My wife's dad was a milkman (well, milk delivery truck driver) until the early 1980's.
