Wow. It's hard to follow a post with a picture of the Incredible Hulk included. And I guess I'll have to stop referring my highbrow friends to our blog.
So speaking of films...Austin and I have been going to these childbirth classes at the hospital, and they've been fairly non-graphic, up until this week, when we get shown a video of women giving birth. Gross! I don't plan on watching myself give birth, and I certainly don't want to see other women do it. We both tried not to watch the screen without seeming too immature about it.
Afterwards, this other pregnant lady asked the teacher what the point of showing us the video was, because she felt like she was about to puke and pass out at the same time. And the teacher had the most BS answer ever! Something about how seeing it helped you appreciate what your body was capable of. Please. I think when we experience actual childbirth we'll appreciate what we're capable of. So then the indignant pregnant lady points out that patients who are about to undergo major surgery don't watch a video of other people having surgery right before they go into the operating room. At which point the teacher said "I appreciate your honesty," and changed the subject.
So anyway, this post is for people who have the courage (or lack of social conditioning) to say the things you want to but never do.
