The things you overhear….

Published by under Pregnancy,Snippets

I’m sitting in the waiting room at my OB’s office. To my right is a man and pregnant woman sharing a couch. I’m not paying much attention to them, other than to note that the guy is a bit of a complainer. However, I soon get treated to overhearing this gem:

Man: You know that song that kids sing? When they’re teasing each other?
Woman: Huh?
Man: When they like each other? You know, “Mike and Lisa, sittin’ in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.”
Woman: Yeah?
Man: I wonder how colored people sing that song.
Woman: Shut up.
Man: No, really. ‘Cause they talk different. “Kih-in. Kid-den.*giggles* How would they say kissing? Kitten.”
Woman: Shut up.
Man: Why?
Woman: You’re being stupid.
Man: I’m thinking. Don’t you ever think about stuff?

Yeah, that guy, he’s a real brain trust. Don’t bother him, he’s THINKING.

In baby news, 24 weeks tomorrow, developing normally, placenta has moved so previa is no longer a concern. Asher continues his perfect record of having his arm up over his face during ultrasound. This time, he also got his LEGS in the game, prompting the sonographer to comment, “He’s flexible.” My nurse practitioner liked Asher’s name so much that is going to put it on her “cool names” list, which if I understood her correctly, she recites to her daughters in the hopes that one of them will like a name so much that they will get pregnant again just so they can use it. This is a new-to-me method of fishing for grandchildren. Good luck, lady!
