First visit with the midwife

“So everything looks great and we’ll see you back here in four weeks. Now before we go, I want to make sure to leave time for any questions you have about the pregnancy.”

“Yeah, actually I have one question.”

“Only one? I guess it’s all old hat by now, huh?”

“Well, no, it’s not that – I’m sure I’ll think of plenty of questions as I get further into the pregnancy, it’s just that there’s this one issue I’ve been wondering about.”

“Well, ask away – I’ve heard it all.”

“Right. So, the thing is, I’m in this comedy show and in one of the skits I shoot myself in the head with a prop gun and fall dead on the ground. So, what’s the best way for me to do that safely?”


“Like, should I just sort of melt to the ground like this? Or maybe drop to my knees first like this? Or maybe ask for a pillow to fall on? What do you think is best? You know, in your medical opinion?”

“You know what, I’m going to let you use your best judgment on that one.”

“Ok, I’ll just be careful. That was a new one for you wasn’t it?”

“Yeah, I’ll have to say it was.”

That is too cute. I’m sure that did stop her dead in her tracks, soooo.. what did you decide? I vote for melting.
