Remember back in November when I wrote about my idea to go into business as a labour-inducer? If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you should quickly go read that post.
But in a nut-shell, I have had several experiences over the last few years where I make plans to get together with a very pregnant sister or friend and plans get cancelled due to the arrival of the baby. Well, yesterday it sort of happened again.
I say 'sort of' since the plans were not officially made. But I had been trying to get together with my dearest friend for a couple of weeks already, since she was due to have her second child in the middle of March. Last weekend's tentative plans fell through, so I was aiming for last night. She had also apparantly been thinking of asking me to get together with her for that night too. Anyway, so I sent her an email yesterday morning shortly before 11:00, opening with "Do you feel like going into labour tonight? I was thinking that we should get together tonight -- or at least plan to...hee hee!"
Well, it turns out that about an hour before I wrote that email, her daughter was welcomed into this world one week early. (this is the same friend that I had made plans with for November 17th 2004, but when I called her to arrange a meeting time after work, she told me she was in labour with her first daughter!)
Coincidence? I don't think so!
I may have been slightly off my game on this one, but I still think my success rate is pretty high! I'm still looking for a title for my soon-to-be-very-successful business -- any ideas??
