A True Story – Sort of
I must have sat in the pre birth station for a long time.
It was massive. As far as you could see, there was nothing
but seats with little TV screens. Each seat had a child in
wating. One of the other kids said it looked like a big
train station. Whatever that meant. I haven’t the foggiest
idea what a train is.
Like all the other children, I just sat there, forever
it seems, watching my new parents on my screen. Well,
I hoped they would be my new parents. They were a
beautiful couple. I watched them grow up, go to school
and get married. I listened in as they talked about
having children. ME!
But as time passed, nothing happened.
Some of the supervisors came by and asked if I wanted
to be reassigned to a different couple. But I loved my
mom and dad. So I sat there watching the screen, praying
for something to happen.
Then one day my parents decided to go visit a “Baby
Doctor”. He tested both mom and dad. He then guaranteed
that for $1400 per month he would get them a baby.
Things were looking up.
So mom took the medications for month after month. She
used little glass sticks to tell her when she was hot.
Then she and dad kissed a lot.
But, still, nothing happened.
So they went to another doctor and he said that for
$2000 a month he would get her pregnant.
Three more doctors couldn’t do anything. The last one
said something about “Poly Cystic Ovaries.” Whatever
Mom cried a lot after that.
My grandmother worked for someone that did business
with a man who made people healthier by working on
their homes. Didn’t use pills or shots. He didn’t
even touch people. Just touched their homes.
So they called him.
