@wharrgarbl Right, definitely. I plan on being THAT paranoid, though.

Related: what do we think about drinking during pregnancy? The toughie in me wants to deliver a stern finger-wagging speech about autonomy to anyone who throws shade at a mom-to-be for having a stinkin' glass of wine. I know it's a difficult topic, though.

@hallelujah I would default to the line of thinking that anything 'foreign' should be avoided - so that in the (unlikely!) event that something happens, you wouldn't have to blame yourself.

@klibberfish Yeah good point. My imaginary party-secretary is sort of a drag.

@Marzipan All is cool until you reach an agreement with one or the other. (Or both, me-ow.)

@Laura Yan@twitter I have this same thought all the time. Like, where is the magical mystical person who will show up at my door and be like "HEY MAMA, PUT ON SOME PANTS WE ARE GOING TO HAWAII RIGHT NOW"..?

But that person is nowhere (except for "Drop Dead Fred," I guess). It takes a lot of work to radically shift everything you're doing.

On Inadvertently Mocking the Dead

@figwiggin This speaks very much to the kind of family I'm from.. but I read Stiff and then went to my parents' house for dinner. My mom was like "Isn't it funny how if you're in a plane crash, your shoes fall off and the impact rips the pockets right off your pants?" While we were eating. There was a beat.. and then all five of us were overcome by laughing fits. Like, can't-breathe-hysterical laughing, all imagining the misfortune of losing your shoes and your POCKETS at the same time.
