Who comes up with this stuff anyway?Posted Monday, August 9, 2010, at 1:50 PM
It was 8:30 p.m., Saturday, and I was ready to lay down.
To be honest, I'm not sure if that is a bad sign or not.
But needless to say, Saturday had been a busy day.
I had spent the better part of the afternoon recording bass and vocal tracks for a song at a friend's home.
From there, I went home and Merry and I had dinner.
Then came 8:30 p.m.
The dogs had been walked. It was getting dark. I had been up since before 6 a.m.
I was tired.
So I went into the bedroom, laid down and started watching "Tombstone," with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer.
What a great movie.
But still, my eyes were getting droopy.
Then, Merry came in.
She had tied a needle to some thread and asked me to hold the threaded needle just above her stomach.
As I did this, she kept asking me if the needle was spinning back and forth or in a circular motion.
It seemed to be spinning back and forth.
I couldn't help but think, "What in the world am I doing? What is the purpose of this?"
After the exercise was done, Merry informed me that we were going to have a boy.
Really, I thought. Based off this?
She said it was an old superstition. If the threaded needle spins back and forth, you're going to have a boy. If it moves in a circular motion, you're going to have a girl.
This seemed (and still seems) rather strange to me.
I still think jellybean is a girl.
