I don't actually think I'm a god...

I was walking with a bunch of co-workers to lunch to farewell a woman who is moving on to bigger and better things. We were discussing childbirth:


Co-Worker: Blah blah blah childbirth yadda yadda pain la la la BAD.

Leslie: Well that's why when I have children I won't give birth traditionally. All of my children will spring, fully formed, from my forehead like gods.

Co-Worker: blink blink...


So yeah. That's how that's going to go. Currently, I have no actual evidence that medical science will have any trouble with this, so suck it, vaginal birth*.

Other than that, I got nothing. After a busy week at work I'm looking forward to laying low this weekend. For the first time in I-can't-remember-how-long, the Man is not running off to ski and he and I will have a leisurely breakfast tomorrow. I shall purchase bacon to celebrate :)

*Just in case anyone is unclear, I am not pregnant. I am empty inside.**
**Ha! That sounded sad but I'm just kidding. I always carry some chocolate cake*** inside to keep me warm.
***Well, not always, but I did have chocolate cake for breakfast**** today.
****OK, fine. Second breakfast.

Perhaps she doesn't remember all the "Greek & Roman Mythology unit" from 9th grade English. I think your suggestion is hilarious and clever!

You're totally going to have brilliant, warrior children just like Athena.

And yes, JAI, I DID just teach a unit in Greek mythology to my 9th graders. HAH!
