New babies are AWESOME! Dammit.

So I'm at the grocery store yesterday (I think I'm always at the grocery store) and I overhear a conversation between a woman and one of the Publix employees.

It went something like this:

Woman: "Hey Pete! Where've you been? I haven't seen you around lately."

Pete: "Well, actually, my wife and I just had a baby so I took some time off.

Woman: "Oh, okay."

And then she walked away.

Does anyone else find that odd? Am I the only one who thinks an "Oh my gosh! Congratulations! How wonderful!" was in order?

What kind of a person doesn't naturally just congratulate the heck out of someone when they're told that person has brought a new life into this world!?!

I almost ran after the guy myself just to congratulate him, but then realized how incredibly weird that would be of me since I wasn't really part of the conversation.

And then every time I saw that woman again while perusing the aisles, I gave her dirty looks. That's right, dirty looks.

PS - I started a new blog for my eBay stuffs! Check it out. :)

I love listening to other people's conversations. Just like this one.

I think that's super strange..and I'm such a freak that I probably would have gone over and hugged the poor bastard.
