Guys and Gals, I'm worried.
I'm obsessed with logic. I can't stand doing something in a way that doesn't make the most sense.
Don't believe me? When I run errands I think through the entire trip. Lowe's is first because it is on the right-hand side of the road, therefor I won't have to cross traffic to pull in. The pet store is next because it is on the left-hand side of the road, so when I pull out, I can turn right and be heading back home. The grocery is last because I have to plan the trip in the backwards order of how I want to unload the car - and the grocery items will be the first that need to be put away.
THESE THINGS HAPPEN IN MY HEAD.
Same goes for the office. I specifically print out all documents at the exact time I finish my cup of coffee so that I can pee, pick up the papers and get a refill at the exact same time.
It isn't just in how I act, but the things I enjoy. Zombie movies are great because the main characters are just people that found themselves in the middle of a really bad flu season. I can relate to that. I can't relate to action movies where a guy goes an entire two hours without dropping his cell phone or misspelling the word 'restaurant'.
But now? Now I'm going to have a kid making a lot of my important decisions.
Have you met kids? They hate logic. They're like, "DAD I WANT MASHED POTATOES WITH MY GRAPES BECAUSE THAT'S HOW UNICORNS EAT IT!"
How the hell am I going to cope with that. "Oh, you want to wear your frog boots to bed because you might have a dream about sea turtles? That makes sense. You do that while Daddy runs this knife over his wrist really slowly."
My kid is going to end up having adult conversations by the time he is 4. I'll tell him about potty training and he'll be like, 'WHAT THE HELL, DAD? I'VE BEEN WALKING AROUND IN MY OWN CRAP AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN TELL ME THERE WAS ANOTHER OPTION? HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO CRAP WHILE STANDING UP? IT IS TERRIBLE. I COULD'VE JUST BEEN SITTING ON THE TOILET THE ENTIRE TIME? WHAT AN ASSHOLE!"
But I still bet he wears his frog boots on the potty.
