Life Before Children

video

Once upon a time, a not-so-long time ago, I had a life that didn't revolve around children.  I had uninterrupted time to myself, I rarely got up before 9am, and I was able to shower every day.  It was a heady time of life, people.  During this age of narcissism and free time I worked as a stand-up comedian.  I told jokes to drunk strangers in return for either money or free pizza or "exposure".  Sometimes I got heckled.  Once, someone threw fruit at me.  Mostly, people laughed.  The life of a comedian is a roller coaster ride; it has the highest highs and the lowest lows.

So I guess you could say it was fantastic preparation for parenthood.
