How My Parents Never Had Sex

This came up in a recent conversation and I had to laugh about my naive teenage self.

When I was a young teenager, I started doing some calculating about my parents marriage date and the birth date of my oldest brother. Somehow, I kept coming up with only six months between the two. But I knew I must have made a calculation error, since my parents never would have had sex before they were married. Heck, being my parents, they were not supposed to have sex at all.

I convinced myself very easily that in reality there must have been 18 months between the wedding and the first birth. I am blonde you know. Math is not my strongest subject. Or actually it is, which is even more scary.

Later I found out it was six months and not because my brother was premature...

I guess that explains why my mom wasn't marrying in white, but I still love this one wedding picture I have of them.
