“Grey’s Anatomy,” and Other Autobiographical Stories

I’ve been brainstorming ideas for how to borrow from popular culture to frame my autobiography. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

“Grey’s Anatomy” – An eternally-running television series about a middle-aged woman’s eggs and their quest for McSpermy. (Genre: medical, dramedy)

“Snow White” – The story about how a Maiden turns into a Crone and only then decides to become a Mother with the help of seven in-vitro cycles. So far. (Genre: Brothers Grimm fairy tale)

“1984” – An Orwellian tale about the number of subcutaneous and inter-muscular shots it takes me to get pregnant. Or not. (Genre: non-fiction)

“The Terminator” – It’s 2029, and I’m still trying to have a baby after 23 years. Stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as my uterus. (Genre: sci-fi, action)

“Rite of Spring” – A composition about life and renewal everywhere except my uterus. (Genre: classical music, ballet)

“Exodus” – The Passover story where the 10th plague is God’s “passing over” my uterus so that I never get pregnant. (Genre: Biblical)

“Cats” – A foreshadowing of my life after the pursuit of family-building ends. (Genre: Broadway musical, horror)

Or, if I’m really lucky,

“Sticky Fingers” – An album of Rolling Stones songs about life with a baby. Or two. (Genre: rock and roll, fantasy)


About TG

My eggs don't work, so I manifested a baby via egg donation. Let's blog and see what happens.
