How rumors get started

Mom at preschool pickup: "Sarah, I need to ask you about the girls' Sunday school class."
Me: "OK."
Mom: "Did you teach yesterday?"
Me: "Yes."
Mom: "Did you...share something?"
Me: "That to cook?"
Mom: "Anything else?"
Me: "Noo...."
Mom: "My daughter told me that Helen's mom is going to have another baby in a couple of months and that you prayed for her and the baby."
Me: "Oh! No, we're getting a new nephew and cousin. We prayed for him and my sister."
Mom: "OH! Well, [daughter] has been telling everyone that you're having a baby, so if anyone asks, that's why. I'm so sorry."

I wonder what else they took away from the lesson.


  1. Oh dear! That's like that old post office game. Or maybe it was a telephone game.

  2. LOL! My mom always said that when you're a teacher in the kids classes at church, you're always the first to know about pregnancies. ;) Those little kids will talk.

  3. It seems the baby message over-rode your passion for cooking :)

  4. Hysterical. Thanks for my Monday chuckle. So much for the great recipes you offer being trumped by baby talk. So funny!
