4 a.m.

(Telephone ringing)
(whispery throaty voice)  Hello
Yeah. (Who the fuck else would answer my phone at 4 a.m. with a female voice?)
We still don’t have a baby. (Then why the fuck are you calling me? At 4 fucking A.M.?)
They checked her at 12:45 and she had only dilated to 2.
Uh huh. I told you it would today before she had that baby.  Do you know you have to be at the homestead for closing at 9 a.m. (Why did I bring this up?)
Yes! and I’m really upset about that. I’m calling the realtor at 6 a.m. and… (blah, blah, blah… snore)
Well, I’m going to go (blah, blah)
Yeah, call me when we have a baby.

7:30 a.m. (whilst I sleep through the alarm for 45 minutes)
(Telephone ringing)
(whispery throaty voice) Hello
We still don’t have a baby…blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…6 cm….blah, blah, blah…epidural…passing out… blah, blah, blah… 11:00 a.m….blah, blah.. realtor… blah, blah…
Mom, call me when we have a baby. (Click)

If I gotta wait… so do you.  Saturday is the Blue Moon, maybe my little niece/nephew will wait until then to make his/her appearance… (evil laugh)

    Inanna, I think I missed something… is your MOM having a baby? Or did I mis-read something because I’m sofa king we todd did?

    Ang — LMFAO!! Yeah, hun, you did miss something. At the very bottom of my post I put on there that perhaps my niece/nephew would wait for the Blue Moon to show up… its my brother and sister-in-law who are awaiting the birth of their third child-monster. My mom was at the hospital with them most of yesterday. LOL!! No, no, my mom is not having a baby… LMAO!!! Sorry hun, but the idea of my mom being allowed to propogate and raise another child is beyond my comprehension and just EW!
