I'll be the first to admit I'm not a baby person. I adore toddlers & kids, but babies just aren't my thing. I don't get all squishy when I see a newborn in a stroller or a babe-in-arms at the grocery store. Sure they have that new-baby-smell, but that's only about 10% of the time. The rest of the time babies smell like a cross between mildew and sewage - sickly sweet and mildly unpleasant. The only good thing about babies is that when you put one down you can come back later and find it right where you left it.
Anyway, I saw my pregnant friend yesterday and she showed me a bunch of pictures from her ultrasound. Ultrasound pictures look like abstract art to me: I know there's something there but I just can't make sense out of it. I know enough about being a good friend to make an effort, so I looked through the pictures and then pointed to one that I thought was the face and said (in all sincerity) "oh, look at the sweet face!"
My friend gave me the "LAB, you're a moron" look and said "That's the crotch. The doctor took a picture to show me that it's a girl."
Whatever, people. I tried.
