Trying again in 2010

No, we haven't had "The Talk" yet, but for the first time last night Pace brought up "wanting a baby". We were leaving a friend's house (that is pretty well off financially) and he was thinking aloud saying something about doing some work for him "to trade for something". Now....I am thinking he wants a toy hauler or something - something to take to the dunes and camp in or something, so I was getting a little frustrated. The conversation went like this...

Pace: I wonder if XX (our male friend) would consider allowing me to do some work for him for a trade
Me: Trade??? What kind of trade
Pace: Trade for something that I want instead of him paying me
Me: What is it that you want?
Pace: (ignoring me) I think if I approached him the right way, I could get him to do it.
Me: What is it that you want?
Pace: (continuing to ignore me) I just have to think of a way to approach the subject
Me: What in the world is it that you want????

Pace: A baby

Me: *silence* had no idea what to say, after a few seconds I said "Honey, I don't think XX can carry a child for you" We exchanged smiles and left it at that.

I love that man. He is the most amazing friend I have ever had and even though we get frustrated with each other, or aren't on the same page...we are still best friends. the way, in my "Tribute to 2009" post, I gave some false information. Pace did not rent a Porsche for me for my was a corvette. He read my blog yesterday and was sure to correct me. I felt like a bit of a butt, but I am not a car person. I don't remember that kind of stuff. So...I am sorry honey, I love you and I LOVED the car. Whatever type it may be :-)

OK, this reminds me, so I have to share it - did you hear the news item (a year or two ago?) about the guy in Germany who paid his neighbor to impregnate his wife? The wife was iffy about it and her husband had to talk her into it (the couple had been ttc for several years and the husband apparently decided that, since the neighbor had kids, it simply made sense to hire him to stud). Anyway the kicker is - after several tries it didn't work, and it came out that the neighbor's kids weren't really his - his wife had cheated on him (which he hadn't known). So the original husband tried to take him to court to get back the money he paid him to knock up his wife. Only Germans, right? Anyway...
