Jackson brooded "It's like having sex with a butterfly."
Was the human having second thoughts?
While contemplating whether Freckles would be worth having to influence the other three or not, Jackson caught sight of someone in his peripheral vision.
We're having dinner tonight.

Are you having as much difficulty keeping this night casual as I am?
She's having a blast.
I'm having a showing next Friday.
When they had finished dinner and were having port back in the drawing room, Jackson asked, "Now that you've seen Sarah's shoe closet, would you like to see the rest of the house?"

I cannot imagine having to make this decision.

I know, but having the family's support is more important to me.

I saw Jeff having lunch with this girl just a few weeks ago.
Take my word for it, there was no business reason for Jeff to be having lunch with Cece Baldwin—just monkey business.
Were you having an affair with him?
He saw you and Jeffrey Byrne having lunch.
Fred consoled her in his best fashion in spite of having a snoot-full at the time—the mark of a real pro.
Any hint that we're looking at Byrne or anyone else as having taken that money stops the war and our leverage goes out the window.
Dean arrived just as the service was beginning, having been at his desk since 7 a.m. stewing over the recent turn of events.
It may take a while, but she shouldn't have any real difficulty having her husband declared dead—but she refuses to sue.
Then, in a fit of honesty, he apologized for having put away a bit too much booze after he dropped her off.
If you're still having a problem I'll have to dial-a-stud.
While he knew he should report his suspicion of being bugged, he feared having to answer questions about his clandestine work in the Byrne matter.
Randy seemed relieved to be having company.
While Fred had chatted amiably during the course of the two weeks, he confined his discussions to methods that might be used in finding and identifying Byrne, and never complained about having to remain in Parkside.

Instead, he settled for a postcard to her and one to her son, each with a bland "Having a great time" message.
You planned on having dinner with him?
Normally he wouldn't mind having the attention of a room full of females, but this was different.
Maybe that was why having children had been such a non-negotiable part of her plan for the future.
I'm not used to having a phone in the house, much less carrying a cell phone.
Well, if you want to, but you'll have plenty to do after we're married - and I was looking forward to having you home.
If I could get you pregnant, we wouldn't be having this conversation right now.
It was one of those rare evenings when she regretted not having a television.
Maybe he was having second thoughts now.
It was like having a heavy load lifted from her shoulders.
What did you mean when you said that we wouldn't be having that conversation if you could get me pregnant?
Lori was having a rough time of it.
Having children of her own was such a priority that she had missed something truly gratifying.
I love having you there, but I don't sleep well knowing you're in the next room.
You're having second thoughts.
His voice was even, as if he were having trouble staying in control of his emotions.
I didn't even know I was having all those feelings.
Was he having second thoughts?
Are you having second thoughts?
He might think she was having second thoughts about getting married.
I was having so much fun; I guess time slipped away from me.
Still, having the luxuries Alex provided was delightful.
I guess he and Lori are having problems and he needed someone to talk to.
By the time she got home, she was certain he was having an affair.
It must be nice having someone to talk to every day.
The next weekend Carmen and Alex were having supper at Katie and Bill's house again and Alex was describing a place in Columbia.
Having to give up all hope is worse than the temporary down of finding out I'm not pregnant.
Alex had once asked if Josh would be the person she turned to when they were having problems.
I would have thought Alex was bright enough to realize that having the ability to father a child isn't what defines a man.
If she hadn't been so obsessed with the idea of having biological children, she might have seen it.
Before they started having children, they needed to get to know each other.
Carmen has this fixation about having to pay for everything on her own... not using MY money.
He didn't want to wait until he was in his fifties to start having children.
At the rate Ed is having female offspring; he'll have to be one of your geldings.
She's having her foal.
We're not having a baby.
Alex, do you think you will ever look forward to having a baby in the house?
I would want this baby no matter who was having it, but especially so because it's a part of you.
And Dad, worn out from working the farm all day; disgruntled by years of fighting a losing battle with nature - of never having enough money to take care of his family properly.
And she wasn't the only one having this child.
How could having a baby cause so much sadness for two people who wanted one so badly?
I don't remember having an accident.
You're having a pity party at his expense.
He was simply being Alex —- trying to help someone who was having a hard time.
Josh and Lori somehow managed to keep their marriage together, but Carmen was having less luck with her problem.
I think I finally found a down side to having children.
When you and Alex were having problems, I think he hoped you would split up.
Think of the things she would miss and the instability of having no parents.
How could you think of having someone else adopt it?
Maybe having one mother leave and not come back ... no, surely they couldn't reason that early in life.
They'd been joking and sparring and having a good time.
She still didn't like having him in the house.
Darian, Sofi's having her baby!
We're having six kids.
She admired his newfound air of command but couldn't help resenting him for having a second chance she'd never get.
She had been protected from outside influence – partly by having no television and partly by the fact that neither of her parents worked away from the home.
It was her responsibility now and having a job would give her the opportunity for a more modern approach to being a wife and mother.
Tonight she was having fun, but it wasn't something she would enjoy doing on a regular basis.
It was much more fun watching you two than it would have been having you pick me up off the floor repeatedly.
Obviously he resented having to go to dance school.
He's having trouble breathing.
Having worked together, they probably shared an unpleasant experience with a difficult customer.
Having Felipa at the house allowed her to spend more time with the children.
I thought you liked having him make the decisions.
I'm sure having you close was a big comfort to Alex.
I'm not sure which bothered Alex more, having someone else shoot him or knowing he had suffered for a long time.
You hire a man to trim their hooves, why is having a handler any different?
It's a scary thought, isn't it – having someone look at what you have instead of the person you are?
It was nice having someone who could talk knowledgably about the animals – someone who not only understood their interest, but shared it.
Having a gun wouldn't have made a difference, either.
It was nice simply being with the children and having no other commitments.
I'm having an area fenced in so I can let the goats run in there and eat the brush.
Maybe he had decided being in control of the estate was better than having no control in his home.
She was the one who insisted on having a man who would wear the pants – even if she didn't fully understand what that encompassed.
I was just having a little fun.
You ran off and left me because you were sick of having me argue with you.
It must have been terrible for you – having to make a promise to a dying friend like that.
Actually, she had never considered having a cat – or a dog, for that matter – not as a pet.
She had been so focused on having children – even as a child.
Dad's so set on having him for a son-in-law that he doesn't even notice.
If you were anywhere near the lover that you are a politician we wouldn't be having this argument.
How would he see that no one bothered her - by having her followed?
And yet, for someone who was bold enough to drive up and introduce himself, he was certainly having a hard time working up the courage to ask her to a movie.
It was stupid to eat something from the woods without having someone to advise her.
Having fun, are you?
It must have been tough for you, having grown up with all of this.
Maybe he's wondering why you're having second thoughts.
I'm not having second thoughts.
You are happy having nothing and living alone in the shadows.
You are happy having nothing.
She rolled her eyes, uninterested in having such a blatant reminder of Toni's perfect body.
She'd been having a decent time with the blond hottie.
Jessi almost told him to go to hell except that, right now, she was almost having fun for the first time in years.
I don't want you having anything to do with them.
Maybe the level of discomfort he experienced about having something in his life not fully under his influence was what Jenn attributed as fear in hers.
Xander studied the wily Grey God, aware of Darian's reputation for having a wild streak that bordered on suicidal.
We're having a boy.
