Baby

Post by Stevenloan » Wed Feb 24, 2021 2:55 pm

- A mother has just given birth to a baby boy in the hospital. A doctor comes and says to her "You did great. That's a lot of baby to deliver.". Does "That's a lot of baby to deliver." in this context mean "It was incredibly difficult for you to give birth to the baby."?

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

It would imply that the baby was a big one. Tho from my own experience I would say that babies of any size are difficult!

I had two babies and didn't have any trouble at either birth.

I think you might be on to something with this childbirth subcontracting operation, Bob:

"No job too large for our expanding business. Our experienced contractor will handle everything for you".

Do you think that I could patent the idea Erik?
Or has it already been done?

Alas, I don't think so. However, you could still monetize the process if you can establish a relationship with an entity that will pay you for being a sperm donor.

Good luck! 😛
