Kirsten Greenidge on "Milk Like Sugar"

Until well into college I was a very good girl. I didn't drink, I didn't smoke, and most Friday nights I stayed in and watched "20/20" with my mom and sisters. On Saturday nights I usually babysat for my mom so she could go out. With her librarian friends. Who were all also divorcees and each home by the eleven o'clock news. So it was with great fascination that I sat down one day to a talk show -- I want to say it was Sally Jesse Raphael, but it could also have been Jenny or Ricky or Maury -- and listened to a very young teenager shyly but happily confess she was trying desperately to get pregnant. That she wanted a baby very badly. That she could not possibly wait until she got a job or her license or her diploma.
