A lesson in eavesdropping

Last night, my husband asked me, "So, is so-and-so pregnant?"

Wait a minute. What the? And this is how I replied:

"Didn't we have this conversation after church with her husband today? I heard him talking about how he'll be busy this fall, and that's the reason, blah, blah, blah. Remember, I turned to you and said, 'See, you were the one who guessed first, and you were right.' And then I turned to him and said, 'But we never ask. Congrats. We think it's great!'"

And then my husband replied, after nearly falling over with laughter:

"We were talking about how World of Warcraft 2 is going to be released in November. That's why he'll be so busy. I thought you were being awfully nice and unusually supportive about it."

It's too bad my foot fits so nicely in my mouth.

*BTW, she is pregnant, and she's having a boy in December. She said so herself. At least I know enough not to ask!


  1. Miscommunication can be an amazing thing, can't it? You should feel lucky that your husband didn't say something along the lines of, "so what exactly is the new one coming out," or "this version should have a lot more to it than the last one… it should be a lot more exciting."

    Now that could have been embarrassing!

  2. I like your quotation on the side, I never noticed it before . . .its true, I was crying last night and wound up with a killer headache this morning. Soooo not worth it!

  3. Actually, it's Call of Duty: Black Ops that we were talking about.

  4. okay, THAT is funny. FUNNN-NEEEE.

    We should totally go to lunch.

  5. But WW2!!! On noes...well, at least he'll get to play for a month without errr, interruptions.

  6. To be fair, it's pretty addictive.

    I'm glad I am not a boy.
