Birthing Class Number 1: Happy Uterus

Hightlights - Birthing Class #1

About two minutes into the class, the instructor asks for two male volunteers to come up to the front. Traci tries to jab me into volunteering - uh, I don't think so. Two suckers, however, do raise their hands. The lady gives each of them a marker and sends them to the white board.

"Okay," she says. "We're going to play Pictionary." I know this isn't going to be good. The men take their positions at the whiteboard. "Alright, on the count of three I want each of you to draw a uterus. One, two, three!"

Both men have the identical blank stare on their faces. After a few "uhs" and "ohs" they each make their attempt. The first guy draws a random pattern that's not really a circle and not really a square. The second guy starts with a circle, then adds two dots and a curve. That's right, a smiley face. Or as I like to call it, a happy uterus.
