Typical conversation  
At work:

Y: Did your friend have her baby?
Me: Yes, July 4th.
Y: What did she have?
Me: A boy.
Y: And they are well?
Me: Yes.

There is a bit more to it on occasion, but that is the gist. I don't know if these people have any idea what I want to say about what she had... This wouldn't be bad, but meranthi has been on leave for a month, and I only started getting the questions all the time this week.

1. *fixes questioner with best Captain Obvious look* "... A baby! Weren't you listening?"
2. "A springer spaniel! The doctors have never seen anything like it!"
3. "Pre-eclampsia, but fortunately they got it under control..."

Dear me. :-)

Heh. Based on the whole child rearing process (from fertilization to kicking them out of the house):

Space alien
Parasite

I know for certain my parents felt that way at least once!

Er...and wait for the blank looks???

I have been polite, and you know me, that is a minor miracle in and of itself.

Ready to come back yet? *evil grin*

That's a trick question, right?
