Hang on, let's think this through.

You're half my age. If I'd become a father at your age, my child would be your age when I was my age. And I'd be my own grandfather. No, grandson. Ah, hang it!

I don't know if it's the heat or the blonde hair, but I had to read this about six times. :P

Yes, it's a little strange to be the oldest (known) in this list. Just call me grandpappie ... although happily (for me, at least) I'm not. I've never been woken by that siren-like screaming! .... except for baby-sitting, of course. I make a fair uncle, but would have made a rotten father, I think.

I was out yesterday, and there was one infant screaming because she was unhappy (the mother oh-so-helpfully telling her 'just go to sleep') and a little boy screaming in play (his mother doing nothing at all) and it makes me wonder if I was just born without a biological clock.

My husband and I decided we are not having children, but it always surprises me that at 34 I feel *no* pangs of longing when I see even the most adorable and well behaved infant.

(However, whenever I see a dog or a cat, I start trying to work out how we could possibly add another pet to our little household, despite the fact that our one bedroom flat is quite full with one dog and two humans...)

OMG I *love* Harry Chapin.
Guess that's 'cause my mom always played his tapes in the car when I was little. Practically nobody outside of my family seems to know who I'm talking about when I mention his music (might have something to do with the fact that I'm in my 20's, but still :roll:)
He was one of the greatest musical storytellers ever, in my opinion. :)

The only answer from me is the same one I give the pre-schoolers I
work with at church when they ask: 1,005. Half accept that without
blinking; the other half give me a puzzled look.

I started to reckon that up in binary when I realized there's no 5 in binary and your pre-schoolers *probably* don't understand binary yet anyway. So I guess I'm in the puzzled look camp :)

Although... maybe you meant 1101?
