Ok here is another one:
I had a beautiful and very young African-American mommy in labor, back in Oklahoma. Her WHOLE family was around, to make sure we took really good care of her. Her GREAT-GRAMMA, who in my estimation was about 85 or so, came to the head of the bed, and pulled me aside:
"Girl you know that is one smart baby in that woman's stomach. You be sure to give them your BEST"
Me: "yes ma'am I intend to do just that. "
Grannie: "bet you don't know how i KNOW that is a smart baby in there do you????"
Me: "no ma'am I am not sure I do."
Grannie: "Figures, you medical types think you know it all but you know from nuthin'...Girl, that baby is smart cause I done heard him talk and cry from the womb....ANY one with a BRAIN knows that means intelligence! Don't you know ANYTHING?" and she shakes her head and walks away, astounded at how stupid the labor nurse is.
Me: "No I learn something new everyday. Thanks for sharing that wisdom w/me". Yes, I said it with a straight face. Who knows, maybe she is right?
They say the DARNDEST things.
