The Real World

Explanatory headers, please! I don't understand! I have no idea what Neal Genzlinger's up to here; I think he has made up a column about an entire life reflected in the titles of actual reality TV shows.

Following instructions apparently isn't Mom's strong suit; she has 19 Kids and Counting. As for my father, the ladies in the neighborhood call him Sperm Donor: 74 Kids and More. I'm not sure why. All I know is that a dozen of the boys in my nursery look exactly like me.
The only thing I know is that it was originally intended for the New Yorker's Shouts & Murmurs, but somehow ended up in the Times by mistake. It Was Real, Cradle to Grave. Or Was It Just TV?
