I’ve joked about it before but you know you’re finally an adult when it’s good news when your friends get pregnant. With Erin’s job there are a lot of babies all over the place. One of our friends just gave birth yesterday and there was a baby shower at my house a week before that. Babies are everywhere and the whole thing is weird.
When Erin tells me that somebody she knows just gave birth, my first reaction is the same as it would be as if she told me that they just died.
- Did I know her?
- How long ago did I see her?
- I will never see her again.
And then I wonder what they’re going to do.
- Have they made arrangements?
- Will I be invited to something awkward?
- At least it wasn’t me.
