  • My Dad bonks my Mom and sure enough... I was conceived. I don't remember much of this year since I was busy being all calm, cool, and comfortable in the womb. In case you are wondering, my parents WERE married, so (opposed to many views out there) I am NOT a bastard.
I do not have ANY pictures of the conception, so there are no links here. You sick little twisted monkey. I, like most people in the world, never want to admit that my parents ever had sex in the first place. I would rather think that I was quite the immaculate conception just placed there through the miracle of God (sounds much more pleasent than my Dad boning my Mom one night - ewwwwwwwwwwwww - I think I'm gonna hurl!!!!!!)
