In case you haven’t seen this, it’s quite the Formerly cautionary tale. Not that this has ever happened to me. Maybe it only happens with French kids. American children, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, are world renowned for their exemplary behavior, especially in public places.

I would argue that children are an express train to Formerlyville, one which you’re likely already on if, like me, you wanted children and indeed planned for them and payed a reproductive endocrinologist thousands to help you make one. But if you’re not planning on kids, you don’t want to be forced into Formerlydom against your will. And certainly not by the likes of this little sugar fiend.

My advice, not that you asked: Unless you’re already a Formerly or have come to terms with being one, make friends with your little rubber buddy. And remember, with condoms as with most other things, you break it, you buy it, and you often get more than you bargained for.
