1. I switched the middle and last names of my newborn son in a mass email to family members announcing his birth.

2. I’ve referred to my son at least twice as “she.”

3. I drank a can of regular soda, thinking that it was the diet version.

5. I used someone else’s grocery cart during a shopping trip even though it contained lots of groceries (e.g., pineapples) that clearly weren’t mine.


  1. Clever! By leaving out 4. you demonstrate your point in a way the examples only hint at.

  2. And the interdisciplinary contribution of fatherhood can be found in the ridiculously long ultras. When you start hallucinating, you'll know that you're ready.
