Imagine that you have these two friends, a man and a woman, and they decide to make a baby. You’re thrilled, right? These are your friends, after all, and spawning this tiny little human is just a freakin’ miracle. Fact is, you couldn’t be happier for them.
So one day, you’re kickin’ it with these friends of yours and they get around to asking you what you’d name their baby. Being the jokester that you are, you neglect the flattery of the moment, opting instead to giggle and say, “Rufus.” You laugh, and they laugh, and everyone’s having fun, at which point you all take another hit off the bong (joking…don’t do that, kids…especially when you’re pregnant, bad idea) and go back to enjoying your evening.
Anyway, a couple days later, after you’ve all had a chance to recover, your two friends sit you down once again and say, “Alex, we have some good news.”
