* pacifier argument


I used the pacifier
without any knowledge from my wife first
until she had found it
accidentally buried in sofa cushions
one morning

she expectedly nagged at me

do you know that statistically
90 percent of the babies around the world
have pouted mouths (with mouth-pouting act)
and crooked teeth at the age of 5
because of this germ sucker plastic nipple?

I retorted
do you think he could reach at such age
if i won't jam this peace maker stuff
and seal his mouth from crying?
