In Retrospect

O daddy’s little pound of joy, a perfect, healthy blue-eyed boy! Could a man be any prouder, or his boasting any louder? Cigars and champagne, too, make the rounds with a big to-do. Fast forward sixteen years later and given the boy’s behavior he cusses at how so dumb to not have used a condom and his wife so negligent to let herself get pregnant!
