hey you

Apparently I have reached the point in this pregnancy in which random strangers in the street feel the need to shout things at me. Nice things, for the most part. But still, who are you?

Behold:


MICHELLE
(Walking down the steps of the Health Sciences Library)

RANDOM MAN
You're having a baby!

MICHELLE
(Weighing options for answer, some pithy and some profound, finally deciding upon...)
Yeah.

RANDOM MAN
That's so sweet!

MICHELLE
Thanks, uh...Mister.


Or how about this lady:


MICHELLE
(Walking out the front door of the hospital)

LADY
(In wheelchair and leg cast, smoking a cigarette)
Congratulations!

MICHELLE
Thanks!

LADY
When's the baby coming?

MICHELLE
In about three weeks.

LADY
Looks like you're having...

MICHELLE'S INNER MONOLOGUE
A boy? A girl? A bobble-head doll?

LADY
...a real porker.

MICHELLE
Oh. Uh...thanks?


Currently reading: "The Handbook of Clinical Anesthesia." This book is pocket-sized, so it reads really fast and also makes me feel like a giant.
