A thread wherein guys rant, complain, and chat about MANLY MAN THINGS
It's just something that guys actually talk about, I used to work with a guy who had to take his shirt off every time he took a dump a la George Costanza. I play UNO on my phone, it's nice and relaxing. But since I take care of two little boys all day, you have to leave the door open, and it's like taking a crap in public. I haven't done that since basic training... ugh. The cats are always visiting. It's very disconcerting.
i can completely relate. except now i have a toddler who demands to stand in the doorway (doesn't want to separate, but doesn't want to be locked in), a 5 year old who comes just to laugh at me, and an 8 yr old who walks by and gets super embarrassed. then there are the two cats who want to sit on my lap (inevitably a cat jumps on my lap, the falls off and scratches me). the toddler also has this new habit of playing with the lid while i'm on the pot, so he's slamming it against my back. it's great fun. of course it's not always like this, every time, but these are each frequent, possible factors.
Having to leave the door open while shitting because you can't take your eye off your toddler is just one of the many fucked up things about modern society. Leaving one person to watch one or more children with no backup whatsoever is really stupid and horribly inconvenient. Sharing out baby-watching in a group is so much more sensible...
Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.
i'd leave the kid alone for the 3 min it takes if it wasn't for the screaming. "OH MY GAWD I CAN'T SEE YOU. ARE YOU DEAD? DO YOU STILL LOVE MEEE???" of course there are times that I do leave the kids alone for a few and crazy shit happens. oh well, as long as no one is irreparably harmed and nothing is irreparably damaged, it's all good.
but yes, i agree with you. the general loneliness and full-on responsibility associated with the care of modern children is fucked up. community is almost totally gone. parents shouldn't have to choose between their kids and adult contact.
So I was planning on fasting until tonight but I'm getting paranoid that my bro will take my leftover roasts. Is the fast worth the extremely mild stress?
In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
