Indoor Kids


My friend Kathy has been pregnant since 1997. I don't even remember what she looks like when she's not pregnant. I have no idea how many children she has because I think she has them in litters. Every time I see her, there are at least three new ones. She can't squeeze them all into her Toyota when she needs to go to the grocery store. She leaves some of them at home with her husband or they take two cars. I don't think that I have ever seen her with all of her children.

I can't tell them apart. All children look the same to me. Children's faces should be on the tops of their heads so that you can tell them apart without having to stoop down to get a look at them. I can't tell how old they are and the younger they are, the less likely it is that I can determine their gender.

I went over to her house for the first time in years yesterday. One of the kids (female, not in diapers) let me in. She told me that her mom was in the kitchen and then went back to playing with matches. I picked my way over the bodies of children playing on the floor. I felt like a Marine, only with a good haircut. I kept saying, "dead bodies everywhere, dead bodies everywhere," over and over again in my head.

Kathy was sitting in a chair in the kitchen with several kids strapped into highchairs and booster seats. There was a pile of uncooked rice on the floor. I was going to offer to clean it up, but then I figured that the United Nations had probably just dropped it from a helicopter.

Everywhere I looked, there were children. They just ran around in circles, bumping into each other, falling over, crying, and blowing snot bubbles. I remembered a conversation that I had with Kathy years ago about birth control. Kathy didn't want to be on artificial hormones, but apparently really, really enjoys sex. She told me at the time that she was using wild yam to prevent pregnancy. I'm thinking that maybe she used it wrong. She was probably supposed to masturbate with a wild yam, not take some gelatin free capsule of dehydrated herbs and have sex with an actual man. I kept this thought to myself.

We had a conversation in 30 second spurts interrupted by Kathy banging her head into the kitchen table every time one of the kids threw up, punched another kid, or got head stuck in the washing machine.

When it was time to leave, the door was blocked by children milling about in clockwise circles. "Excuse me," I said politely. There was no response. I looked at Kathy for help. Kathy was wiping crap off of her sleeve and yelled, "y'all get away from that damn door and let Ms. Mist out!" Some of the kids stood there staring out of the door, the rest changed direction and wandered in counter clockwise circles. I looked back at Kathy who was now on the phone and encouraging one of the kids to stop, drop and roll.

I pushed through the kids and opened the door. It reminded me of when people come to my house and as they open the door I scream at them not to let the cat out. I was not quick enough. The second I opened the door, two of the kids escaped. They were stunned for a second and then filled with the elation of being outside.

"Kathy, some of the kids got out," I called to her. She waved me off.

I think she must have one of those invisible fences to shock them if they leave the yard. She should really should install a doggy door.

She was probably just glad to have fewer to keep track of. She probably leaves the door open on purpose sometimes, in the hopes that at least two or three of 'em will hook up with wandering minstrel troupes or at least Girl Scouts schlepping cookie orders around the neighborhood.

The wild yam sentence made me huff out some Snickerdoodle crumbs, as I read it. I should know better than to eat cookies when I read your blog.

jocelyn,

I really want some Girl Scout cookies now.

 
At 8:38 PM, Blogger Churlita said...

That was the most depressing thing I've ever read on your blog. It made me want to mainline every artificial hormone I can find and then masturbate with a yam. Maybe I should wait a little longer before I start thinking about dating again.

Thanks for the laugh...you're post totally cracked me up!!!

You are scaring me! What is this, Halloween? Gah! It reminds me of an art project I did with plastic babies all over a plaster cast of my breast, circling like ants.

Were you at my sister's house? (and yes, I'm being serious.)

 
At 9:20 PM, Blogger Ginamonster said...

mmm. snickerdooles. If I didn't need to head to bed soon I'd go make some.

My best birth control method? I get all hopped up on artificial hormones and men still don't want me. Maybe I should try Wild Yam. Apparently taking it means I will get some.

 
At 9:23 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

churlita,

I'm sorry I depressed you. Have fun with the yam.

ee,

Laughter is sort of my thing.

Thanks for coming by.

Your art scares me.

karmyn,

What's your sister's husband's name?

gina,

Wild yam is a sure shot. Works every time.

Best kind of kids. Someone else's. Anyone else's.

Next time? Bring them all those little plastic recorder flutes. (My brother still won't let me come back over.)

By the by, heading your way this weekend. A little trip to Hotlanta. Get some barbecue, visit a couple lawyers. Wish williebee was still there at the zoo. sigh.

If I could, I would kiss my IUD right now.

(And if I could kiss my IUD, I probably wouldn't even need a man, you know?)

 
At 9:54 PM, Blogger mist1 said...

natalie,

I am so intrigued by the IUD. I have never seen a real one. Nor have I seen a UFO. Totally different, I know. One keeps you from getting pregnant and the other impregnates you. But still, both acronyms.

 
At 10:45 PM, Blogger Chrissy121875 said...

OMG...reading your post, I could totally envision your friend's house...kids everywhere. As much as I think kids are great, that sounded like a nightmare! I hope you didn't get your lovely shoes all mucked up in goopy stuff walking through the house.

I work on nights sometimes with a guy that brings his two younglings in and they run a round like chickens with their heads cut off.

This was just natures way of thinning the herd. She'll likely have more before she even notices these two are gone.

i knew a girl who masterbated with a yam once. in 6 weeks she had an entire potato garden.

it was just wrong.

but good potato salad.

 
At 12:52 AM, Blogger spoon said...

I feel blessed to be barren...or is it just that I'm not having enough sex whilst taking yam supplements!

 
At 1:29 AM, Blogger Love Monkey said...

Ok, that was pure geniously hysterical. Seriously. It's like 4:30 AM and I think my laughing woke my neighbors up.

 
At 1:50 AM, Blogger EsLocura said...

We grow yams here at the aslyum,thanks for the new marketing ploy. "yams, you too can come" of ocurse I will have to add fine print that warns of correct usaged so I don't get sued for the "gangs".

 
At 2:08 AM, Blogger hyacinths and biscuits said...

something about the typeface you use for your blogs made me think that "wild yams" was "wild yarns". Also, the fact that it's 5:07 am and I'm not yet in bed. But anyway - I was utterly confused. "masturbate with yarn?" I thought. "that seems like it would be far too tricky to be worth it.

Then I read some comments and discovered the error of my ways.

 
At 2:23 AM, Blogger choochoo said...

maybe some of them will eventually eat eachother, and then she'll have fewer kids to worry about.

 
At 4:31 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

chrissy,

Thanks for thinking of my shoes. That will win you big points.

blitz,

Shouldn't the kids be asleep at night, or does he have nocturnal kids?

bice,

You must watch a lot of Animal Planet.

yasamin,

I think that's what happened to the potatoes in my cupboard.

spoon,

Go to your nearest natural foods store and stock up on wild yam.

es,

Assylum was an excellent adult movie. There were no yams.

h & b,

Gives new meaning to crochet.

choo,

Plus, she'd save a fortune in groceries.

Wait isn't Wild Yam for muscle strains - isn't that what that hussy girl cheerleader was rubbing all over Keanu Reeves in that movie??? Umm the Replacements I think it was....

 
At 5:05 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

cheeky,

Didn't Keanu get pregnant at the end of that movie?

 
At 5:15 AM, Blogger heather said...

mist, rush imediately to the nearest shoe store. you can not allow yourself to fall asleep until you have filled your memory bank with much more pleasant pictures. a gang of kids, good grief. i have one child and a husband. that's more than enough. (anyone want to borrow the husband? he doesn't clean, fix things, or buy me shoes but he is good for the occasional romp in the proverbial hay and keeping the couch from floating away.)

 
At 5:18 AM, Blogger mist1 said...

heather,

It's too late. I'm scarred for life. Also, you can't just go giving your husband away. You have to auction him off to the highest bidder.

"It is this adult expression pattern of Mist1 that we are particularly interested in .."

A true quote from a Pedue Scientist. See here: www.bio.purdue.edu/people/faculty/konieczny/index.htm.

Apparently they know about you, but just have not found you yet..............

If you stop hanging around your friend Kathy and her kids, well, for sure Purdue could get on with figuring out your "adult expression patterm".

I'm surprised the kids survived.

I thought about adopting a few. I want to feel like a real celebrity.

The air was sticky and warm in the house. Everything was sticky and warm.

I only wipe one a$$ too. Mine.

reba,

Funny. She did go to school for fashion design. How did I not put that together?

yvonne,

I think she likes having that many kids. I mean, it looked like she was having a good time, especially when she collapsed into a pile of Legos. I think those were tears of joy.

Reminds me of the time I tried to get adopted by a better family. I just skulked about the garage for a bit until they told me to "git" and chased me off with rocks.

Hey Mist? Are you available for baby-sitting and what are your fees?

Love so many wonderful phrases here but "I felt like a Marine, only with a good haircut" made me larf out loud.

No Invisible fence needed. Just let them go and whoever comes back, well, it will still be too many.

Wild yams? Y'know, after spending the whole day with only two kids, the only birth control that I'll consider is the barrier method... he's on one side of a door, I'm on the other.

Seriously, my haircut is better.

I heard that's more effective than the pill, the shot, and the ring together.

I feel weird calling you Mama. I don't even call my own mother that. She would kill me. People are always telling me how inspirational I am to them. Usually, they go to rehab shortly afterwards. Put me on your visitors list.

 
At 7:37 AM, Blogger Webmiztris said...

LMAO! This reminds me of my in-laws. None of them have pets and when they come here they just stand in the door and hold the door open ALL THE TIME! If my cats get out, I WILL KILL THEM! I don't let their children wander outside when I'm at their house - and I expect the same respect with my cats! ps. I think shock collars on kids are a good idea. if that can't happen, I should at least be able to taser ones that annoy me.

I think the yam would have worked as birth control is she had properly inserted it. Also, it has to be wedged in there tightly enough so that nothing else can fit in there. Please pass this info on to Kathy.
