Lunch was going pretty well until we realized that we were all of the sudden SURROUNDED by babies. Literally..surrounded. I'm kid you not. There were at least five or six women, milling around our table with either brand new babies in slings, strollers or car seats. It was bizarre. One of the girls, who has a one year old, said "Oh my goodness, look at all the babies!!!" She paused and said, "Seriously, I want to have another like NOW."
At that point our good intentions about limiting the girl talk went out the window and all of the girls began ooh-ing and ahhh-ing over the herd of babies. Everyone (except for my boss, our new hire and myself) started talking about how much they want to get pregnant. I should mention that most of the girls in the office are either pregnant or have been pregnant in the last year or are trying to get pregnant.
All of the sudden, my boss, a woman who dotes over everyone's babies but does not want any of her own, annouces, "NO ONE is having any more babies!!! I need you all!! Button it up ladies!"
At this point the poor guys looks absolutely terrified. I'm sure he was thinking, "What the hell have I gotten myself into?".
I'm pretty sure my boss is counting on me to be the person who isn't trying to get knocked up... if she only knew the truth.
Anyways, it was pretty darn funny!
