Missing a Pay-Per-View Opportunity, Perhaps

So some people are upset that their prenatal sex tests were wrong. In other words, they thought they were getting a girl, and they got a boy. Or vice versa. And they are PISSED.

C'mon, people! Follow the logic of your own way of looking at the world!!!

This isn't a problem; it's an opportunity. You can do a weekly reality show (pay per view?): Throw the wrong-sexed babies off a cliff! Imagine the ratings, the sponsorships, the profits!

What would the show be called?
"Oops."
"Fix My Baby's Junk."
Whatever.

Retro and forward-looking at the same time.

I'll switch to serious mode now. People who are that interested in control are going to have trouble as parents.

It's not the Catholic in me that shudders at this. It's the poet in me.

Tbis sort of stuff is hard to take on a normal day. For someone who had much trouble even getting pregnant, to the point of coming to terms with being childless, it is even harder to listen to.

On another blog, I saw this:

"Rita's pumped about London and convinced me that it's worth giving up a home game."

OK, convince ME.

That's an in-person conversation. With beverages.

Thanks for the timely post. We think we are having a boy, but a girl would set me straight.
