I'd like to have kids someday, but even more, I'd like to have grandkids. With those things, you get all the fun of kids being around, without them being around all the time. What would be ideal is having grandkids without having to raise kids first.
Is this possible?
I began to think of the ways. Of course, my first idea was the old biogenetically-engineer-a-fetus-to-be-capable-of-childbirth-then-give-birth-in-the-womb-then-abort-the-babymomma trick, which gets a grandkid without a kid, but doesn't really solve anything.
Then I thought, maybe I could adopt someone who's about 25-30. Peak childbearing age. My new children would not have to be raised, but would soon have their own kids — my grandkids. Problem solved!
Going even further, how about I adopt a woman about my age, then having a kid with my new "daughter". Then I have a genetically related grandkid who's also my kid. Hmm...I guess this doesn't solve the problem of having to raise a kid, but obtaining a daughter, a wife, another kid, and a grandkid all within 9 months would have to be some kind of world record.
Wait...is this legal? Wait...is this ethical?
Maybe, just maybe, it's a bit creepy. But so is this picture:
Furthermore, am I the only one who isn't crazy about that Modern Family show?
