I Wonder What I’ll Do Tomorrow…


Barnes in action

Barnes in action

When it comes to procrastination I’m probably in the top-10 rankings worldwide, which makes this story about Irish Olympic hopeful canoeist Helen Barnes all the harder for me to understand. Ms. Barnes, 36, wanted to continue her training and prepare for the 2012 London games but was worried that at age 40 it might become harder for her to eventually have a family. So, the career supply teacher (whatever that is, does she teach people how to find the supply closet?) opted to get 10-15 of her eggs frozen.

“When I missed out on Beijing I didn’t feel ready to finish and wanted to continue and go to the 2012 Olympics,” she told her local paper. “I think every woman has the right to do whatever they want with their body. All I am doing is maximising my chances of having a baby in future. I am really lucky the science is out there for this to happen.”

I’m totally in favor of this, I just can’t imagine ever having such foresight, or actually getting around to doing such a thing. I haven’t even eaten lunch yet. I have the food in my kitchen. I just need to eat it. But that’s all the way over there… Maybe later…
