Hey Bristol, here’s a different way to do it

GOP veep nominee Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol has been drawn into the crosshairs of the blogosphere and mainstream media for being preggers at the sweet young age of 17. Personally, I think eating moose burgers is at least as questionable as getting knocked up before you’re 18, but that’s just me.

I just hope Bristol’s still paying attention to the news because the Associated Press has broken a story (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2008/09/08/international/i104402D70.DTL&tsp=1) showing another way to handle starting a family. According to the AP, hospital officials in France say a 59-year-old woman has given birth to triplets after going abroad to get donated eggs.

See, the smart thing to do may be to just wait until you’re mature enough to start a family like Frenchy did.

Then again, having a kid at 17 probably beats giving birth when you’re 59 even if it means being grilled like a cheese sandwich by the press and bloggers.

By the time Frenchy’s kids are graduating from high school she’ll be pushing 80 and heading for a retirement home while they head to college.

My head feels like it’s about to explode when I try to wrap it around the idea that Bristol will be changing her baby’s diapers at the age of 18 and Frenchy’s kids will be changing their mother’s diapers when they’re 18.

Forget Bristol, maybe someone should have taken the time to have “the talk” with Frenchy.

I guess escargot clouds a woman’s judgment as much as moose burgers.
