Conversation with two women who work at my bank

"Do you read the paper?"

"Um, you could say that, yes."

"Well then you HAVE to read today's. There is an article written by a young woman who's pregnant. In fact, she's probably about as far along as you are, and it talks about all the old wives' tales she's tried to induce labor. It's hysterical. You really should read it."

"Actually, I wrote it."

"Oh, I'm sorry! ... That's embarrassing ... I didn't put two-and-two together."

"Pam, I was TRYING to tell you that this morning."

"That's okay. I'm just glad you liked it."

"I clipped it to send to my daughter-in-law. She's due Nov. 7, but she's about twice as big as you are."

"Well, you ladies just made my day in more ways than one. Thank you."

"Oh, and Kelly, we decided that you forgot to try a bumpy car ride."

Those experiences are great. :) I love the anonymity of journalism. You get to sit back and hear people talk about your work and they may not even know you're right there.

Gravity helps during labor, however, in our industrialized nation doctors place mothers in a position where you have to work against gravity during birth.

after the birth of your daughter, are you going to change the header of your site from doggy to baby?

Great newspaper column posted here yesterday; fun how sometimes ppl don't still connect you with the column, or maybe a sad commentary on declining newspaper readership.

Renaming them "Old Husband's Tales?" KELLY! Before modern medicine and heart stents, there were no old husbands left to tell tales! LOL!
