We have a winner!!! (11/12/09)
Hi Mom, I wanted to take you out to dinner tonight. I have some really important news to share.

Can't you tell me now?

What would the fun be in that Mom? Don't you want a night out of the kitchen?

OK let's do it.

At the restaurant:
Let me hear your big news before dinner please dear?

Yep that was the plan. I am pregnant mom. I am having 9 babies. So I beat her world record. I told you I would, and I did. Aren't you proud?

But dear I never dreamed it would happen. You told me your were going to fly on your wings to the moon and you never did that. How am I supposed to know what you are going to do and what you aren't?
Big Ups To: 2cats
Method of Selection: A nice twist to the somewhat-expected "I'm pregnant" announcement. I especially like the part about flying on her wings and she never did that.

You've received your promotion, and we're letting you take the summer off to travel!

(No delivery build-up or reaction necessary because all I care about are those words!)

I always see that you're gazing at stars
And you're bored with our old flying cars
So, my darling, my dear,
For your birthday this year,
We've got spots on the rocket to Mars!

Overheard at a restaurant in New York City, circa 2230.

“Okay.” She said, unsure of what was coming.

“I got a call from an old friend today. He’s working on the pilot for a show called. “Eyeing Elves.” They’re going all over the world hunting for elves. He sincerely believes they exist.”

It occurred to her that she should close her mouth but she just couldn’t.

“Anyway,” he continued, “Remember all that money that I inherited from Uncle Seymour?” When she didn’t answer he continued. “Well, I told him I would back his pilot!”

Silence.

“Isn’t that exciting?!?”

Still her mouth hung open.

I have been doing a lot of thinking and I decided that I want to no longer be a man. I'm scheduled for a sex change operation in a month. I'm hoping we'll be able to share some of the clothes in your closet in a few months. What size are you?
