Dr: Would you like to hold ur baby?[flashback to when someone handed me a burrito & it slipped from my hands to the floor]
Me: that’s ok

#11. Proof that infants are just tiny, drunk adults.
Babies hit the bottle all night, poop their pants, puke, don’t work, don’t pay rent…; Reminds me of a drunken roommate I evicted.
