“I knew I was an unwanted baby when I saw my bath toys were a toaster and a radio” I’d read this in one of my mother’s magazines, when I was a child. Being born is like a lottery, you don’t know which mother you are going to get. I was number 326 and I was lining up waiting to be embedded in some woman’s womb. Ironically 325 didn’t feel well on that day, so he was made to sit out. If he’d been well, then my life might have been so very different. I would have had a nice mother then. Instead I got ‘her’; instead I drew the short straw. Did your child get the short straw? Hey you! I’m talking to you! Put the book down, YES YOU! Did your child get the short straw? “We are not makers of history. We are made by our history” – Martin Luther King Junior said. So, am I a monster due to nature or nurture? Did my mother do this to me?
