That's me, I'm him...

DISCLAIMER: Although I am a car guy this is not solely a car blog. I will talk cars, but this is also a blog about how I view the world. Just ask my mom and she will tell you my first word was "car". I do have a slight fascination with them. Luckily I have a supportive family and a very understanding wife...

Just a bunch of parts...

I recently had a conversation with a very pregnant woman. She was talking about her baby and how big the doctors believed it was growing inside her. They had some belief that her child may be big enough that she might not be able to deliver it naturally. No worries though I soon eased her mind:

"... and they just don't think I am going to be able to deliver naturally."

"Why is that?"

"Because they believe my baby might be over 10 lbs and I am a very petit build."

"Well it's not like the kid comes out all at once."

"Oh I know you have to push them out over serveral tries."

"Yeah I think I would be worried about getting all the parts out. Not how much they all weigh."

"All the parts out?"

"Yeah, the parts... kinda like Mr. Potato Head."


"Think about it. The dr always says I see a head... oh and there's an arm... and I got a leg... oh and a foot... one more push... there ya go... and... it's a boy."

She looked at me puzzled.

"If the baby didn't come out in parts why didn't he know what you had until the very end?" I asked

She got a little queezy look to her face.

"I am pretty sure that's why they put a sheet over you down there too. Just incase it is a newer nurse and it takes her a minute for final assembly. Think about it."

"Uh - I'm uh gonna go now..."

"Hope I could help!"
