That moment when one of your body parts fall asleep..
Who ever invented the “Knock- Knock jokes” should get a No-bell prize
Magicians have always been obsessed with the idea of creating something out of nothing; and the highest form of that is to make a life, a perfect life, appear from thin air. And I’ve always longed to witness an event like that for real. But then I realised that I have. The chances of all the circumstances being in place that would lead to two particular people meeting, and then them falling in love, are supremely minute. And then, if they come together to have children, the chance of one particular sperm fertilising one particular egg, and then one particular life emerging is even more unlikely. And …this improbability multiplies generation after generation after generation, down through your great grandparents, and your grandparents until finally, by chance, your mother… meets and falls in love with a man… And then from their decision to come together and have children, and against those impossible odds, it’s you that’s born. Your life is a miracle.
