My friend E that works with me is pregnant. Baby is due next month. We love picking on our editor. I don't know why. He is such an easy target though! And it makes us laugh.
ANYWAY, here's an IM conversation E and I were having today:
E: they say that labor usually starts slowly. and my doctor encourages us to labor at home for as long as possible. i'm sure i could even walk home (1.5 miles) when it starts. that's my hunch. we'll see though.
E: or i might ask for a ride home. :)
ME: see, i can't see me being all zen and saying, I think I'll stroll home
ME: i see me being like, THIS BIG HEAD BABY IS COMING OUT MY STUFF SOON HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPP
E: you crack me up. i know. i still can't believe i have to give birth. yikes. I'm like, getting pregnant will be fun! having a newborn will be fun! but birth? I forgot about that part. what did i get myself into?!?! :)
ME: IT'S COMING!!! (GOES INTO EDITOR'S OFFICE AND MOANS) THE BABY IS ON THE WAY (LAYS OUT ON EDITOR'S DESK)
E: oh my god. i should totally do that. i should actually pretend. see what he does when i'm like 39 weeks along. i'll drape myself across his computer and say, 'i just want to have the baby right here'
