The Other White Meat

A client of mine had her baby on Saturday, about 2 weeks early. Not knowing this, a co-worker and I called her office this morning to talk about a project. She answered the phone and we talked briefly. As we were saying our goodbyes and good lucks, my co-worker says to her, "Enjoy your baby!"

Enjoy your baby?? What, is she serving it for dinner? Do people say that, or am I the only one who thinks that's weird?

No you are not, a congratulations on the baby or how is the baby doing or how much weight u need to loose after the baby would have been much better. Was this person a native english speaker ?

Classic... maybe they are serving it for dinner. Sick sick people you deal with.

Ha, that sounds as if the baby is a temporary thing, i.e. "enjoy it while it lasts".

That's totally something I would have said! Words come out awkwardly sometimes.

I prefer the ever-endearing, "While you're changing diapers, I'll be at a bar drinking tequila and getting shot down by women who think they're hot."

Really, how much fun are babies when they are first born? They are just a pile of mush. It's not until they start talking and parroting, then the party really starts happening.

Definately something not quite right with that!

I agree with Classy though, for that first year or so, they're just a screaming bundle used for turning food into some unholy substance.

I say weird shit like that sometimes, too, just quickly and not thinking.

Now I've got Fat Bastard in my head saying "Come 'ere, I'm gonna eat your BABY!!!"
