Whoa...

Life is full of things that just amaze me. Here's a few examples:

1. There is a windchill factor of 6 degrees here this morning. I wore shorts this last weekend. How does that happen?
2. I met a woman named Bonkey this week. How does that happen?
3. A friend of mine told me her sister-in-law had a baby over the weekend... except no one knew she was pregnant- even her. As a woman in her forties who was told she could never have children, she attributed her weight-gain to depression (due to the emotional pain of "infertility") and attributed her physical "symptoms" to pre-menopause. She went to the doc when she was 4 mos along and they even put her on hormones for the "symptoms." HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN? She thought she was sick when she went to the hospital, and came home with a 6 1/2 pound, full-term baby girl. Try explaining that one to everybody.

By the way, I realize #3 sounds like something I made up. I didn't. And just so you aren't too traumatized by that strange story, here's a joke to leave you with from one of my hilarious youth group-ers:

Question: How does Hitler tie his shoe laces?

Answer: In little knot-sies.

Have a good one!

That is the CRAZIEST thing I've ever heard and the scariest! To be pregnant and not even know it. WOW!
What a blessing for the mommy who always wanted a baby.

I would normally not believe #3, but I have a friend from high school who had the same thing happen (except she was 20, not in her 40s). I still don't get it though.
