It Can’t Hurt That Much

15 May 2007 /

I was telling my son about a woman in Arkansas who’s about to give birth to her 17th child. Her oldest is 19.

“Doesn’t that hurt?” the boy asked.

“I wouldn’t know,” I said, “but it can’t hurt that much if you’re willing to do it 17 times. It can’t hurt as much as, say, a kick in the groin, because after I took one kick in the groin, I wouldn’t sign up to take 16 more.”

“The pain goes away, you know.”

“Are you suggesting that I would be willing to take 17 kicks in the groin?”

“Over a 19-year period, yeah.”

“Agree to disagree.”
