For Wannabemom: another semen story


A view of our room
Originally uploaded by Temmerling.
I think it was our 4th or 5th cycle. It definitely wasn't our first or second because those we did in the basement bedroom while finishing the remodel upstairs. And it couldn't have been our 3rd, because that wouldn't be enough time to gather the amount of dust that this story entails. So, the 4th. Or maybe the 5th. Definitely not the last, though.

Our donor had produced for us at his house and we brought it home in a jar. We went into the bedroom and Kristin climbed on the bed. I started doing my thing with the syringe -- pulling up the batter into it and then slowly, slowly pushing the air out -- when my thumb slipped and pushed the plunger all the way in, sending the semen shooting the semen out. We had the lights dimmed to protect the life of the sperm, and lord help me, but I COULD NOT find where the semen had landed! I felt my hair, Kristin felt her hair -- no semen. So I had to turn on the light. When the room flooded with sperm-killing light rays, we still couldn't find the stuff. We looked on the ceiling, the bedspread, the floor.

Finally, we looked on the glass shelf that Kristin uses for a night stand. There, in a puddle, on top of a thick layer of dog hair and dust (funny how you never notice how dusty something is until you're forced to look at it) was our semen. Kristin and I looked at the dusty, hairy semen, then we looked at each other. Then, with a sigh, I used the syringe to suck the semen up (additions and all) and finish the job. I was just too precious to sop up with a paper towel and throw away. Needless to say, we didn't get pregnant that cycle...

So where was it?

I can't tell if that's the end or if blogger is being crazy (there are some strange lines that may be text).

Oh Cocoa, you're right, the end of the story is lost! I'll type it in now (it was there when I first posted it, I swear!)

Hmmm, maybe it was better that that one didn't work. It really did work out for the best because you have Julie (who is just too cute for words) and a funny story to tell.

Oh dear God. That is too much and I laughed so much and so hard, I was just chastized by Partner. (Since I am *supposed* to be resting and taking it easy.) Jesus. That was too much!
