Speaking of lesbians....

The couple behind us at dinner was going at it last night. Not in the way that makes men happy, either. More in the way that makes men happy they are single...

she1: It's always the same with you. There you were, making plans, never consulting me. I was just sitting there like a jerk and you were making all these plans and agreeing to things for both of us. Never asked me what I thought. Not once.

she2: What are you talking about?

she1: It's exactly like last Christmas.

she2: Christmas?

she1: This isn't going to work out. It just isn't. You do whatever it is you feel like you need to do and that's fine.

she2: What I need to do?

At this point I had to make a fake bathroom trip because I was certain that she2 was a man with a high voice. Specifically, the technique of what? followed by the repetition of a phrase, any phrase, lifted from the previous sentence spoken by your partner. Such the guys way to participate in an argument. Very strange.

Nothing on the pregnancy front. My vitamins make me sick to my stomach so I have to have them with breakfast, which I don't eat so it's getting a bit tough to remember to take them every day. Fascinating, huh?

On another strange note.... I was doing research for a project and, ironically, I found myself reading all about infertility. Fortunately, I'm not at the worrying phase so it was just plain interesting. UNTIL..... ever heard of spontaneous twins? Yea, me neither. Well, it turns out that if you have been busy having a career, or professional atheletes or whatever you did during your 20s and early 30s, you body didn't forget about the whole procreation thing. If fact, your body has been stockpiling.

Spontaneous twins. All the 40-something mothers with twins in designer strollers in my neighborhood... I used to think to myself "Fertility drugs". Now I know better. It turns out that in some sort of push to breed, a woman's body will release MULTIPLE EGGS to get the job done. I recently read a study that says that we long in the tooth broads may be releasing eggs MORE THAN ONCE A CYCLE. I'm a pregnancy time bomb. I feel like an inside-out sushi roll, with eggs all OVER the outside of me.


I have to go read about adolescent psychosis so I'm prepared for school and motherhood.
