“What would she have made of her life in the absence of childbirth? Maybe no more than she did in its presence and to ponder such possibilities denies the value of motherhood.”
Debbie McGowan, Hiding Behind The Couch

“Married?” my mother said.
I was waiting for, “What, like Elton John?” or some such.
“Yes, Mum.”
“Well, I suppose that means you won’t catch AIDS.”
“Very true,” said I. “Wedding rings are more than adequate protection…”
Debbie McGowan, Checking Him Out

“We're not twins!”

Focus on someone else’s problems for a change, I instructed myself. You need the practice.
