Today at the gym I saw a girl I hadn't seen around for a couple weeks because she was busy having a baby. I congratulated her (I always feel false when offering these congratulations) and then asked the expected, "What did you have?" immediately followed by "A boy or a girl?" Yeah, I had to, you know, give her those options, because otherwise she would not have known I was referring to the baby, and said, "Eggplant parmigiana with linguini and garlic bread, and my husband had the shrimp scampi. We also had a salad with the house dressing." Yeah.
