Where I Got My Start

I traveled back in time to the moment of my conception. I found myself standing outside a car as my mom and dad made out inside the car. It was awkward.

The car was shaking. My parents sounded like they were lifting weights. Then the shaking and their sounds stopped.

I heard my mom gasp. She said something that I couldn’t make out. My dad unrolled the window.

My dad said, “What are you doing?! Get the hell out of here!!”

My dad sounded scared. It can be very scary when you’re naked because of the increased vulnerability.

I said, “You don’t recognize me. You will. But not yet.”

My dad was quiet and reflective. It’s said that when we procreate, a piece of us is in what’s born.
