A father goes to a "soft play center," which sounds like the English version of what we here call "A bouncy place" (well, that's what I call it). He's sitting there with his infant, in the infant-only area, when a 3-year-old gets in there and starts jumping and throwing balls around. The rest of the story is one of the funniest things I've read in a while, but also the saddest, because you know that kid is ruined. You can imagine what this kid's life will probably be like for the next 20-30 years, and you may be way off, and maybe that kid will grow up to be a compassionate human being. But more likely, he will treat his kids the same way he's being treated now, continuing the chain of heartless disregard for children's emotional well-being.

Read the rest of the story on BabberBlog, which is a blog written by a new dad in England, a country much like this one, only with more swear words on blogs.

And although that blog includes many references that people outside the island will not get, that blog definitely needs more outsiders reading it, because it's freakin' hilarious, and it's real. As someone who often feels like a sell-out for abandoning his more personal blog, I still search for real blogs writing real stories in a personal way. BabberBlog is definitely one of those blogs.
