Joke's On Me

Attempting to calculate my approximate conception date (because, you know, one should do such things), it occurred to me that I was likely conceived in April, 1981. (I subtracted ten months from February, 1982, because I was a month late.) Which suggested that my entire existence might have been predicated on some strange April Fool's joke. ("ha! no, i didn't put on a condom/take my birth control! ha!")

But then I realized that I had miscounted, and, in reality, I was likelier to have been sexed-in, as it were, in May. Also, my parents are Catholic and did not, to my knowledge, use the ol' contraceptions. So really, my entire though experiment was ill-gotten from the get-go.

So it could have been kind of an International Socialism kind of thing -- perhaps your parents were out carousing on May Day with the members of their cell, came back home and fell into bed together.

(Oh and according to Wolfson, the verb is not "sexed-in" but "fucked-up".)
