Correctly Guess the Child She’s Carrying Every Time!


A pregnant woman brings out some strange qualities in people. They want to touch the belly or give unsolicited advice or offer to help with something the woman is perfectly capable of doing.

Another thing people like to do: guess what she’s carrying.

You’ve heard the myths: If you’re carrying low, it’s a boy; if you’re carrying high, it’s a girl. If the baby’s heart beats faster than 140 beats per minute, it’s a girl. If you hang your wedding ring through a strand of the father’s hair and hold it over your belly, it’s a girl if the ring spins; it’s a boy if it sways. If you mix Drano with some urine, a green color means a boy.

And so on.

Forget all of those. I have the 100-percent, guaranteed-to-be-right, never-fail prediction.

When you see a pregnant woman, you point at her and say, “Let me guess? Human, right?”

You’ll be right every time. She might even laugh because it’s not the usual answer she gets.

Until next time! Use the right words!

It’s here! My début book, “If You Experience Death, Please Call: And Other Fatal Mistakes We Make With Language” is available on Amazon for only $14.95.  Order here.
