    I don't hate TLC; just that one song. It went #1 in 1995 and then just sat there for like two months and they wouldn't stop playing it on seemingly every freakin' station. It's not a bad song; people just wore it out, and I never want to hear it again.
    I don't hate babies either; just don't really get the fascination. They're, as I said, boring and funny looking (yes, all of them...even your grandkid, Doris), and of course, they're spectacularly needy. Alert me when the thing is able to hold some semblance of a conversation.

    And then there's Fleetwood Mac. I do hate Fleetwood Mac, and I fail utterly to understand where people see the brilliance there. Stevie Nicks sounds like my chain-smoking 8th grade math teacher.

    That's fine, I'll be charge of the babies. When you are a non-threatening middle-aged woman, strangers will often hand over their babies to you for cuddles. It's the best thing about being middle-aged. I have held people's babies on airplanes while they went to the restroom on multiple occasions. Yes, I think holding someone else's screaming baby for them so they can pee is a treat. They don't all cry. I have been called a baby whisperer by more than one friend.

    When you're right about something, you are so very, very right. I'll hold the babies while we hate on Fleetwood Mac together.

    Stevie Nicks is awful at factoring. It is known.

    I've been called the black hole of babies. If I get a chance to hold a baby, I don't want to give it to the next person wanting to hold the baby. When Allie brought her twins to church, it was great. I held one and Kurt, the other black hole of babies in church, held the other one. I'm also the weird one that, if the baby needs to be changed when I'm holding them, I grab the diaper bag and change them instead of handing the baby back to a parent.

    I always felt a little awkward holding other peoples' babies, mostly on account of being scared I might break them, but I enjoy holding my own.

    Ah, but this can cut both ways. My wife is a non threatening middle aged woman, and she recoils when people thrust their babies upon her, which they occasionally do...

    I’ve held a grand total of four babies in my life.

    Or a middle aged respiratory therapist who takes care of babies. My wife's best friend was over with her baby 3 years ago and mom passed out. They left me with the baby while they went to the ED. It was a GREAT 4 hours. I assume he still thinks of me often.

    I am the family baby poop whisperer. Whenever I hold a baby, he or she lets loose. So much that my sister-in-law would hand my nephew over to me whenever he was constipated - and it worked!

    Do your powers extend to the elderly? You may want to consider quitting your day job...you seem much more palatable than prunes!

    Actually . . . I have been told . . . that my voice has a laxative effect. I have thought about renting myself out as such. Over the phone only though. Dial 1-900-HLP-POOP.

    Love the avatar — I’ve been using my phone so just seeing it now on a different unit.

    I need to travel with your wife. I can protect her from the babies.
