PS: the excerpt is taken from “Uterus” written by an Israeli author, Etgar Keret.
Eventually my mother died. Eventually all mothers die. And my dad became a famous arctic explorer and whaler. The girls I dated always used to take it the wrong way when I’d peek at their uterus. They thought it was some kind of gynecological hang-up, which is a definite turnoff. But one of them, with a really nice bod, agreed to marry me. I used to spank our kids a lot, right from infancy, because their crying got on my nerves. And the truth is they learned their lesson fast, and stopped crying for good by the time they were nine months, if not earlier. In the beginning I’d take them to the museum on their birthdays, to show them their grandmother’s uterus, but they didn’t really get into it, and my wife would be pissed off, so little by little I started taking them to Walt Disney movies instead.
