trendspotting




so in the 36-or-so weeks that my precious tiny darling bridelette has been knocked up, we have noticed a bit of a trend.
  • three people in my office (besides me) are either pregnant or married to someone who is
  • two of those people (not including me) are in my very small department
  • four people at mrs nice guy's office are pregnant, not counting the two who recently gave birth
  • we just met our new neighbors. nice couple. she's due the week before mrs nice guy

i was walking with friends last weekend through our hood on a perfect sunny day. as we stood in front of a corner coffee shop, pregnant lady after pregnant lady walked by. bouncing bulgy bellies abounded. i exclaimed, feeling vaguely threatened, "they're fucking everywhere!" a friend replied "no, they were fucking everywhere a few months ago." sweet.

anyway. all of this was to say: by all means come to new york, people, but please for the love of god do not drink the water.

It's YOU, mr. nice guy, YOU. You're like an unstoppable reproductive disease, spreading it's way through the north east. Why, actually, I think I just felt a kick. I got knocked up just from reading your blog. Apparently, your fertility is finding it's way through the internet. WATCH OUT, READERS.
