mom: so i saw on Facebook that Jon-David was in town. you guys hang out?
me: yep, he was here last weekend. we had such a good time together. we ate a lot and went to the LACMA.
mom: that’s nice. have you ever thought about, maybe, you know having baby with him?
me: ummmm... never seriously, kind of more like a joke. i am still hoping plan A works out.
mom: what is plan A?
me: meeting someone and falling in love. then comes the baby. you know, the old-fashioned way.
mom: well, it’s something to consider. you should talk about it with him.
me: it’s just that you have really come a long way — from communist russia to california suggesting to your single daughter that she have a baby with her gay best friend. i’m impressed.
