Guest Blogger - Where did I come from?
Lily Hay, a friend of Fertility Foibles, wrote something that I though was hilarious, so I asked her to post this:
Not long ago I found the old book “Where Did I Come From?” my mom used to teach me about where babies come from in the 80’s. Then I was going through some of our books in the Resolve library and the one titled “How to Get Pregnant” stuck out to me because it is SO thick. After thinking about the two I had a good chuckle at how simple the original teaching was when I was probably 7 and how complex the teaching became in my 30s. I thought someone else might appreciate the irony so I’m posting a photo of the two books and their “stats”.
“Where Did I Come From?” by Peter Mayle - approx. 22 pages with big text and lots of illustrations (still available, by the way)
“How to Get Pregnant” by Sherman J. Silber, MD - 457 pages, small text and very few photos
I thought that was one of the best juxtapositions I'd seen in a long time. Thanks, Lily!
