Did you read this story about the twins born by c-section at midnight of New Year’s Eve in Illinois?
Doctors pulled out the girl in 2010 and then the boy in 2011. All planned out.
What are people thinking? Or maybe, what are the doctors thinking? Get your patient’s kid in as Baby 1? Or is this what they do for grins these days given the increasing numbers of monotonous c-sections?
Whatever. Smirk, Doc, if you want. The parents totally missed having a tax deduction in 2010 on that boy.
Then, I had to go read the article’s comments. It’s become a train wreck thing for me now, reading news stories’ comments. I don’t want to, but I can’t seem to stop myself.
Like a calorie-free 1 lb. bag of peanut M&Ms.
Including the feeling sick afterwards.
Don’t page down, don’t click to read comments, don’t you do it, Wendy, nooooooooo.
ARGH! I did it.
Know what they riffed off on in comments? You’d never guess.
rowdy (ID name) picked up on the fact that the parents had different last names and wrote that it was sad another unmarried couple is on the front page for New Year’s.
And then it went from there.
Judge, judge, judge-y, judge their worthless judge-y self.
Even a staff member chimed in that you kids should play nice or go home (more or less).
Why do I do it? Why keep reading those things? Should news stories allow comments? Do you read those things?
Or gasp are you commenting in them?
