Most Helpful Guy
I thought I wouldn't. I'm vulgar, I'm drunk a lot, I smoke, curse, make profane jokes which are often inappropriate even for some adults.
But I had a single mother who brought her kids one time while we were drinking (somewhat inappropriately). Her daughter ran up to me and asked me to give her a piggyback ride while I tried to stay as far away from the children as I could to avoid being a bad influence.
I picked her up and sprinted and spun around, and she was so happy. Her mother was a widow (soldier who died fighting). Her daughter called me "dad" that night and it just pulled at the heart strings.
I never thought I'd like children but that night changed everything. After that her son also wanted a piggyback ride, and I was drunk but I sprinted and spun around, and it was funny. Then both wanted a piggyback ride at one time and that was pretty damned hard, but I think I was happier than I ever was that night. I dressed up as Spiderman later and sang Karaoke with the kids.
Unfortunately my wife and I can't have children, but I'm hoping to adopt some day.3
