The premise for I'm No Stud came to me in a flash of panic as I
contemplated the approaching birth of my daughter and her inevitable
journey, or perhaps, demise into womanhood. Memories of my own
childhood and teen years (wild parties, underage drinking, and
STD scares) flooded my thoughts and my panic was quickly confirmed.
I stumbled out into the living room where my wife was relaxing with a good book
and informed her that upon the first sign of puberty, our daughter
would be off to a nunnery. Of course, my wife talked me down
off the ledge, and I soon realized that I too would do what every
sane parent does, commit to keeping his child safe, happy and
healthy, while encouraging her to be her own person and live
her own life. Ifm No Stud is my preparation for the inevitable.
