One of the ladies (B) at work is pregnant. She's pretty young, just 21 I think and recently married over the summer. At lunch today she was talking about being excited to learn the sex of her baby in a few weeks.
Me: Why does everyone want to know the sex of their baby? Wouldn't it be more fun to be surprised?
B: No, I can't wait to find out. When you were pregnant, you just couldn't find out the gender right? They weren't able to do that then?
I had no words. I just stared at her while Kelsie and Nicole choked on their iced tea.
Me (finally): Umm...it was only 18 years ago. The technology existed.
Kelsie: Sandy CHOSE not to find out the gender of her baby. She COULD have found out, but she CHOSE not to.
B: Well, I didn't know! I mean, you are old enough to be my mother!
Me: Oh God. I KNOW.
B: I'm just going to stop talking now.
