What Not to Expect When Expecting

In periods of intense navel-gazing I’ve wondered if my mother hadn’t smoked a pack a day and taken diet pills and DES when she carried me, if I wasn’t raised in a trailer or enrolled in Catholic schools my entire young life, would I be more successful today? But what if this sort of prenatal nourishment and early childhood education had an immunizing effect, and I’m much stronger than if I had been spawned and raised by rich folks? Maybe. I know I’ve developed quite a resistance to bingo halls, truck rallys and Don Cherry. And I never get sick.
