man, i must be a dummy

Ton Ton: "If I only had a video for every foolish thing you've done, I'd have a million bucks."

Shemmy: "Why, would you sell the videos?"

Ton Ton: "Yeah."

Shemmy: "For a million bucks each?"

Ton Ton: "No, for a penny each. That's how many videos I'd have."

d-day approaches

Our EDDs, as predicted by various groups:

April 2, 2007 - Ultrasound #1

April 5, 2007 - Ultrasound #2, Ton Ton

April 6, 2007 -

April 7, 2007 -

April 8, 2007 - Shemmy, Doctor

Then there's our doula, Cassaundra, who assuredly let us know that "most first pregnancies last 41 weeks and one day." So,

April 16, 2007 - Doula

Heh. Heh-heh.

I was in Wal-Mart yesterday getting some "last minute" (?) things, like a diaper pail, when a gangly, mustachioed bucko sauntered by and pointedly observed, "Somebody's havin' a baaaaby."

I politely nodded and said, "Uh, uh."

As he continued on he guffawed, "Ya sure it's not twins?!"

OK, men, here are a couple cardinal rules:

1.) Unless you are 150% sure that a woman is pregnant, do NOT ask her when she's due.

2.) If you are 150% sure she is pregnant, do NOT ask her if she is carrying multiples.

Let's get with the program, guys.

We are Ton Ton and Shemmy.

We live on Maui, Hawaii.

why not a basset hound?

Ton Ton: "I wonder if we could get an Alaskan Husky to go down the slopes with us when we go skiing."

wonder who would win

Ton Ton: "I can't wait to get into a boxing ring with you again."
(During a conversation we had in my eighth month of pregnancy, in which it was debated whether I had gotten too fat.)
