I Probably Should Have Seen That Coming

Nurse Buddy, to me- "Girl. You have got to go take a look at my baby in room 6. It's one of the cutest babies I've ever seen in my life. Seriously."
I walk in there to find indeed one of the most adorable babies I've ever seen, with a tiny adorable baby afro and huge dimples, all chubby and giggly and squee-inspiring. It was especially impressive given the fact that his dad, who was there with him, was a dead ringer for Lil' Wayne, minus the dreads.
I stayed in there for a bit and made a fuss over the baby and then excused myself, making some joke about how the baby was making me want a kid but mine couldn't possibly turn out that cute, so I had better go. Of course, hood hospital Lil' Wayne didn't miss a beat and responded with, "It would if you had the right daddy!", smiling to reveal one of the most ridiculous grills I have ever seen and pointing enthusiastically to himself.
Damn! I walked right into that one. I mean, I'm married and don't want kids any time soon, but I still don't even think that would be a viable back-up plan just based on how many prophylactic antibiotics would be necessary alone.


  1. Ha! Sounds like hood hospital Lil' Wayne was quick with his comeback! Makes me laugh.

  2. You were basically asking for that, but it was still funny! Poor baby's mommy, I hope they're not together anymore for her sake.

  3. Hilarious!

    Hey, did you ever read my blog story about the proposed 3 way by a former patient and her husband post delivery??

    Weirder things happen. :)

  4. Ew, yeah, I do remember that now! You for sure win the creeper contest, dude. I at least think this guy was half joking, but weren't they pretty much totally serious? Yikes.
    Oh, and luckily for her I think baby mama was out of the picture. I actually remember dealing with this same dad and baby a couple of times in triage before this as baby's grandma is a frequent flyer, and mom's never been around.

  5. Are you sure you don't live in my neck of the woods??
    This scenario sounds all too familiar.
