”I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.
Ok, if someone tells you “Oh I got a new car!” you generally don’t say “OMG! I know an entire family that was in a little fender bender in that type of car and then all died mysteriously in the night, obviously because of the car!!!!”
If someone tells you that they are going on a prepaid vacation to X, Y, or Z tomorrow you do not tell them about all the articles you have read about how “X, Y, or Z really sucks because of…. and then everyone dies”.
Are you picking up what I am putting down? When someone has news that is good or exciting to them you do not try and put their candle out!!! It is rude and generally an asshole type thing to do.
SO, when a person tells you that they are having twins DO NOT regale them with all the stories that you know about people who birthed their multiples months and months early, how long multiples tend to spend in the NICU, the time you saw twins on feeding tubes, how when one twin dies the other feels lonely forever, and how you knew a twin mom to be who was on hospital bed rest for 8 weeks! People pregnant with multiples already know all these stories! We have heard them from our doctors, lurking the internet, and the scariest books on earth! We are already freaked out and loosing sleep over what can go wrong so we don’t need YOU to remind us!
We are panicking. If you don’t think we look like it check our pulse.
