It happened in the middle of a math class.
The teacher asked a question which I knew the answer to...it was as clear as day so I decided to pluck up the courage to raise my hand.
Up to this day I’m not sure who was more excited, me for having raised my hand, or my teacher who was seeing me ready to answer a question (and open my mouth to talk) for the first time since I’d landed in her class…
“Yes, what’s the answer?” asked the teacher…
I’m sure you know the feeling of those moments when everything goes blank, a “black out” when your answer suddenly gets stuck somewhere and you’re sure that you don’t know anything and you can’t remember anything…
That’s exactly what happened to me. At that moment, when I realized that I was going to speak, I went silent; I forgot what I wanted to say.

About the book:
BirthCONTROL is a hilarious recounting of the author's experience living out his wife's pregnancy, portrayed with a genuinely compelling balance of bravado, wit, cynicism, and insecurity. It is informative on the subject of pregnancy and the father's role, while also being a dark, entertaining satire that anybody can enjoy.
"…one husband’s hilarious recount of becoming dad... ...a man’s guide to the joys, anxieties and downright absurdities of pregnancy, but you don’t have to be on the path to fatherhood to get a kick out of his side of the story. Expect plenty of snark, but even his blunt (sometimes pessimistic) take is comforting because it’s definitely not sugarcoated. So dads-to-be, here’s the truth from someone who made it to the other side—and moms, you’ll be laughing too.."
Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine
"...BirthCONTROL is a hilarious recounting of the author's experience living out his wife's pregnancy. It made me think of Up All Night or Parenthood, with a definite Woody Allen touch."
Editor and Author Sandi Gelles-Cole
"Hilarious. The perfect mix of David Sedaris, Tina Fey, and Johnathan Tropper. A quick read, I couldn't put it down and laughed the entire way through. Highly recommended. "
