For most people, their first bed, the place where they rest, is a comfortable crib. It might be of the hospital variety (kind of like a fish tank with see through sides) or it might be a traditional wooden cot (with bars, like a miniature prison). By the time you're reading this, you might have had several different beds, sleeping in all sorts of interesting places, but at the time I'm writing this you've only had one.
And it's a freezer.
I'm not sure whether going through the cryopreservation process is anything like falling asleep. I like to think it is. Certainly, being thawed out seems to be like waking up an embryo; some are a little sluggish afterwards and others hop straight back to what they were doing before.
And if that is the case then your first bed is definitely a freezer.
Now before you start thinking about reporting me to Social Services, it wasn't my freezer. It's a special sort of freezer for embryos in the hospital lab, where you're allowed to stay for up to ten years at a time. It's all very carefully controlled and it probably has a special name which sounds nothing like 'a freezer' but right now, you're frozen, so the best place for you is in the freezer.
Plus, I do have to admit, it's kind of fun to see people's reactions when you tell them you keep your kids in a freezer!
All my love,
(who will never keep you in the freezer ever again, I promise).
