This will probably only apply to very few other people, but I had my son when I was 14. When people meet me/us and do that math, some idiots think it’s fine to ask, ‘So how’d that happen?’”

“My ex-wife said this all the time. Also had it on a T-shirt. Probably still says it, though she has no contact with our kids anymore other than weekly phone calls because she is in prison for trying to kill her second husband after he got custody of their kids during their divorce. I could have bought a house for what I’ve spent on family therapy.”

Immediately declaring, “I’m Christian”

Nothing against Christian people. As an opener, I know that person will most likely be one of the least Christian people I encounter. Don’t tell me, show me.”

“Yep, I’m an atheist, and even I am more Christian than the people who start off with how often they go to church.”
