Mr. K and I have been known to get into strange conversations at lunch—you’re trying to avoid talking about “the kids” ad nauseam, and you end up talking about the weirdest stuff. One of our recent conversations was so weird that it spilled over onto dinner last night with our spouses.
The original conversation started with Mr. K reminiscing about his one-year wedding anniversary which was when he found out that he and his wife were expecting their first child. Apparently, his wife wrapped up her positive pregnancy test and gave it to him as a present.
Uhhhhhh. . . can you say yuck?
So, we’re re-hashing the conversation after dinner last night and I’m making all my yucky faces when Mrs. K breaks an even bigger bombshell, “well, that’s nothin’, I still have the test from Sarah in the bathroom.” This child is thirteen months old!!! She’s held on to a pee stick for a year and half, minimum. She’s had the kid, we know she was preg-o, does she still need that test? She’s got a child now.
I don’t have any kids, so this thing strikes me as kind of gross—you gave someone something you peed on? Doesn’t that belong in the trash? Does everybody do this? Am I just a pregnancy test virgin and don’t understand? Do tell. Please let me know your opinion/experience in this area. It all seems a little weird to me.
I’m fooling around with sticking my shoe pictures into my blogs–still tweaking, so bear with me.
