Since Round-Table Discussion About "The WOUND" and The Womb is going into all sorts of tangents, ranging from male-female antics in ATM handling to supposition and assumptions about what adoption is or should be.

I love my boy, but he drives me crazy. Always did.
When he was little, he used to think he was a dinosaur.
