Two best things I heard in the last 24 hours:

1. Jayme: Hey guys, guess what I learned about today at school?

Jayme: Eww, Kate, I don’t want to talk about it!

[awwkward. Heavy on the ‘aww’]

2. Jes: Yea so last night we went for dessert at [some friends] house. [All the people] there had kids or newborns. Mark and I were the only dinks there. It was interesting.

Me: Dinks?

Jes: Yea, dinks. That’s what people call us here — Double Income No Kids.
