unkind, why, fate

Carerica: Opening/Prologue

There are two simecontrollable ways to acheive immortality. There's a third--doing something stupendous (Alexander the Great) or just infernally stupid (Custer's Last Stand) enough to be remembered--but the only really controllabe ways are to either have children or to write a book of your life. As I am unlikely to actually live long enough to have children the 2nd route seems best--though it is a tossup which is the more painful birthing process.
