How to not get pregnant through pure luck.

I was head-over-heels in love with my high-school boyfriend. Aware I was dating above my level*, I did what I had to in order to hold onto the relationship – including using the rhythm method of birth-control. I knew it was really iffy, but secretly thought a baby to seal-the-deal wasn’t the worst thing that could happen**. ***

*I had low self-esteem
**Thankfully, I never had to test this theory.

***I'm not proud of any of this


  1. OK, let's see if this works...

  2. Real comment: it probably wouldn't have been the worst thing that could have happened, but it would have been far from the best thing... unless of course your high school boyfriend was Elon Musk or some other gazillionaire.

    1. If we had married, we would no longer be married. I can assure you of that. But the baby would have had wonderful grandparents and aunts, so it wouldn't have been the worst thing. Still glad it didn't happen.

  3. I think most of us have abandoned good sense over a male at one time or another.
