I made eye contact with the woman, whose name I don’t think I knew.

“Have we met?” I asked.

“I don’t think so" she said.

I looked to her waist. “When are you due?” As soon as I said that I thought of another time when I asked a woman when she was due and she wasn’t. She’d been very offended. Understandably so.

“In two weeks” she told me and added, “I hope he doesn’t turn out like his father”

I had no right to think this, but I thought

“I wonder if you even know the father that well”
