Impish Imps

I was in Starbucks the other day and it was lousy with maniacal children.  One was trying to steal his mom's phone, and she kept holding it up and away from him as he jumped and screamed, instead of just smacking him like she should have; another was repeatedly smashing his toy into the table while his terrible father remained criminally silent; and then a third spawn of Satan knocked over the entire display rack of gift cards, VIA packets, and CD's.

Prognosis for the odds I will one day procreate: bleaker by the second.


  1. I mean, procreation probably wasn't happening anyway. Tough to get your hand pregnant, no?


  2. If you don't procreate, it won't stop people like that from continuing to do so. Better there are more little Curmudgeons in the world than those devil children. :)

  3. Why should I doom my progeny to such an existence?!

    And, Anonymous #1, my hand DID recently get pregnant. Luckily, I had a few wire coat hangers laying around from my last dry cleaning visit... PRIMETIIIME!!!
