I am learning that sometimes people just don’t know what to say, or can’t help themselves from saying what they want to say… Thus continues a compendium of the funny/odd/weird/tasteless/forthright things people have said to me whilst in “the family way”.

Number 2:
when we broke the news to a certain family member (to remain nameless), the response was strikingly underwhelming. if i remember correctly, (and i was listening through the outside of the cell phone that was at AJ’s ear) the response was,
“oh…. well… congratulations?”


a few moments later another question: “well, this was a surprise, right?” to which AJ responded, no, we planned it, and we are very excited.

i know i shouldn’t laugh, but this entire exchange just makes me giggle. i mean, really? Really!
