Yeah, I saw the public defender, Joe, in the hallway. He commented, "I haven't seen you in a while, I take it you had the child then?" I should have looked down and my belly and said, "Oh my gosh...where did it go?"
No, if you really wanted to screw with him, you should have told him you lost the baby.

Coworker #2: (looking at me quickly and saying, very quietly)
I know I've done a good job assimilating myself into this new life. I've tried to make my story conversational so that people don't get weird and uncomfortable around me. I still can imagine no realm of existence where THAT would have even been considered funny. Even before, I would not have found that funny...nor would I have expected anyone else to think that was funny.
I'm beginning to think some of the people I work with are just missing critical strands of DNA or something.
