An interesting story of a one night stand, did not occur? All things related to having a child.Positive test, birthing, child growing up, etc. occurs in record time, yes, quite the nightmare.Stuck with a partner you did not want, must be a horrible way for it to go down. Moments shown of the main character have him unaware of what is going on, possibly a bad, real bad dream. Entertaining, funny and engaging.
