Reasons why I should NOT have children:
- For lunch today, I ate three (that’s right, three) bowls of chocolate frosted miniwheats. As if that was not bad enough, I ate them with milk, despite the fact that I am fully aware of my lactose intolerance.
- I forgot how Felicity ends, so I spent the entire night looking up clips on youtube and reading forums dating back to 2001 desperately trying to piece the ending together, only to find out that the entire show is streaming on Netflix. Of course, by this time, it was 2am – yet I still watched the last two episodes. (Spoiler alert: when you watch a show almost 15 years after you first watched it, you kind of wonder why on earth you watched it in the first place.)
- I can’t think of a third one, but I’m pretty sure the first two sum it up.
