The Lifecycle of Software Objects - Ted Chiang

  "I'm past digients now."

  "You're past them?"

  "I'm ready for the real thing, you know what I mean?"

  Carefully, Ana says, "I'm not sure that I do."

  "People always say that we're evolved to want babies, and I used to think that was a bunch of crap, but not anymore." Robyn's facial expression is one of transport; she's no longer speaking to Ana exactly. "Cats, dogs, digients, they're all just substitutes for what we're supposed to be caring for. Eventually you start to understand what a baby means, what it really means, and everything changes. And then you realize that all the feelings you had before weren't--" Robyn stops herself. "I mean, for me, it just put things in perspective."

 

I'm impressed with Ana for not losing her cool. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have done nearly as well.
