Marla's Gimme a Minute

I Only Need 60 Seconds!


Hi. I’m Marla. Gimme a Minute. No really, I’m only going to take a minute. I want to talk to those of you who don’t have children.

Yet. I would like you to pay attention to the Earth’s rotation pattern. As you are aware, the earth spins, and circles around the sun. It’s done this for, well, for a long long time.

Now, from the moment your child is brought into your home, your world will revolve around him or her, as you are so in love with this little bundle of joy. This is a good thing. And you are setting the stage for ultimate disaster.

These are the same children you may walk to school when they first go to kindergarten, pack their lunches all through elementary school, watch them start to spread their wings in middle school, and then nurture, encourage and support them emotionally and financially all through high school, until their graduation day, when they in all probability, will go off on their own, either to get a job in the real world, or, go to college, which is really just further extension of the life you have almost escaped from.

Until such time as your child becomes less self absorbed, they will believe with their heart and soul that the earth revolves around them. You and other humans are put in their path for no other reason but to serve, feed, clean, and cater to their every whim and desire.

And why wouldn’t you? Don’t you have the greatest kids on the planet? I know I do.

I’m Marla. Thanks for listening. See ya!
