what mom and dad said

At different times and in different ways, my mother and father both warned me about the possibility of impregnating girls. As a teenager, my dad told me repeatedly: "Keep it in your pants." As a young adult, my mom fretted that I wasn't "being careful" with the women I was seeing.


See, they had to get married because of an unwanted pregnancy, and they wanted me to avoid the same fate. It's like they were saying, "Our lives are miserable because we had kids; don't end up like us."

Even though there is a huge time spread, these two posts-- yours and mind above-- belong together.
