Laughter

I'll start this off with a story. Did any of you hear about the woman who didn't know she was pregnant and gave birth at a McDonalds with the aid of a freaked out teenager? This was on CNN in the airport January 1 - I was in a little store when it came on. They played some of the tape from the dispatcher going back and forth with the freaked out teenager. Teen: 'OMG she's having a f***ing baby!' 'The baby's in the toilet!' Dispatcher: 'Tell the woman to take the baby out of the toilet.'

I was just shaking my head at the whole story until after the line from the dispatcher the CNN person dryly makes the comment 'I wonder if we've already heard the best quote in the new year'. That just made me lose it - I started laughing hysterically (as I did when I got the banana bunker - loudly). Even a snort.

You're spending time because sometimes you've got to let it out.

I don't want to let it out. I want to keep pretending everything is fine. I'm good at that.

one question, did she shout out 'omg' or 'oh my god'?

Heather - too funny. No, that was me being lazy... It's not like the commercials yet in real life, I don't think.

G-yes it does.
