Sharon's pretty bright. She was certainly the quickest of my partners to be able to accurately guess where I was going with certain pieces of weird logic and silly jokes. But then some days she just doesn't think.

Conversation from earlier today...

Shaz - If Lex was born today, it'd certainly be an easy date to remember, eighth of the eighth oh-eight.

Me - Yep.

S - And we'd always remember when the olympics started too.

M - Well, always figured that'd be an easy one. The oh-eight olympics started on eigthth of the eighth.

S - Looks like Lex will born during the olympics.

M - Yep. I'm planning on buying that day's newspapers to hang onto.

S - Might get a day when Australia does well on the front covers.

M - Well, I hope it's not a day where there's hundreds of disasters. 'Look Lex, the day you were born, there were earthquakes, floods...'

S - Whatever happens, when he's born, I don't want to hear, "And it's gold, Gold, GOLD for Australia!"

(pause)

M - You know, it had never even come close to occurring to me... (look of horror starts to appear on Sharon's face) But now...

Sounds very like the roleplayer's mantra:
'Don't give the GM/DM ideas!'

If he had arrived today he'd have shared his birthday with Princess Beatrice who also arrived on a very 8y day. 8-08-88.

That sort of date does stick in the memory.

Very, very good parenting advice!

(I can only imagine it will be especially true for dalekboy's offspring:-) )

Some friends of ours had their third boy yesterday - about an hour and a half before you posted this!
