"That's Not Normal"--A dinnertime conversation

Last night, the husband and I went out for an adult dinner with friends. I say "adult dinner" because it wasn't grabbing a slice of pizza on the street after sitting in a crowded bar for several hours watching a bunch of twenty-somethings trying to get laid. And as part of the adult dinner routine, we went back to our friends' place for post-meal conversation where the inevitable question came up:

"So, you guys thinking of having kids?"

Me: "No. And every time I see kids, I can't help but think that the boys will grow up to be drug dealers and the girls hookers."

To which my host responded:

"Um, that's not a normal reaction."

Maybe I should stick with pizza on the street.

Although this little girl didn't grow up to be a hooker, she did grow up to be a comedian which some may argue is just as bad.

Leslie Goshko, normal? Urgh, I hope not. How could we ever be friends?
