I guess you may still have to work on occasion in order to pay for such things as bike parts and perhaps food.

Then you'll have to go to nursing school, or take up computer programming. Nurses make some serious coin.

Big check there, sir. Married her six years ago. Wonderful lady... and so helpful when I am accident-prone.

When I feel this way I just take a pregnancy test. When it comes out negative I say to myself "At least I'm not pregnant".

You could be like windchaser, he's saving up for a Arby's junior roast beef sandwich.

What do yo do when it turns out positive? Do you say to yourself "Yeah, baby. Bring on the roast beef sandwich. I'm eating for two!" ?

I would.

Fun ends when you graduate. Then maybe when you retire it'll return. At least that's what I'm hoping. Every new life milestone between the two seems to add more responsibility and less free time for fun.

The guy across the street from our house is like 37 months pregnant with triplets. Or at least he looks it when he walks around the neighborhood with his shirt off.
