Some people have suggested that my last post was an intricate April Fool's joke, that this was some sort of prank I was pulling on you.



Does that even seem like something that falls into the realm of April Fool's pranks?

An April Fool's prank is tricking someone into thinking they're late for work. Or pretending you've hurt yourself and laughing at their panic.

You do NOT invent a pregnancy for April Fool's.

Admittedly, March 31st was probably not the smartest time to make such an announcement. Pretty much anything I said would be assumed to be an April Fool's joke.

That, however, does not make it any less true.

Susan is pregnant.

I am at least partly to blame.

See, we were both there at the time, but this was not the intended outcome. Unfortunately, my power extends to reproduction.

Frankly, I was hoping for a few practice swings at the time. You know, something to do between Mysticmaker spawns.

Instead, I have created life.

People have suggested that I am a god. I don't want to encourage that kind of thinking, but I will point out that it didn't take me seven days to do it.

48 hours tops.


I'm a firm believer that if you're going to do something, you should do it right.

That shit takes time.

And Gatorade.

A freaking lot of Gatorade.

And was one of the people thinking it was a joke one of your alts? Clinging to hope perhaps?

Man, I just hope for your sake it's not another girl. 2 of the same gender is a recipe for disaster (though admittedly 2 boys are probably worse than 2 girls).

The real fear of 2 girls is that it leaves him as the only male in the house.

Time to buy a pet I think :P

Oh, and congratulations

I repeat my upside down congratulations to both of you, but right side up this time.

You know, they have this great technology called an ultrasound now that tells you the gender of your child.

In my defense, it wouldn't be the first time someone has pulled that joke on me. And I did want to add congratulations to you both.

But dave, you're evil. no respect for humankind. of course it's easy to assume you'd fake a pregnancy just for the sake of an april fool's joke. is there an evil stunt you haven't topped yet?

2 of any gender is going to be a disaster recipe like bufu said. the gender simply changes the flavor. if it's 2 girls, there's all the incessant crying for no particular reason over the littlest things (like i said, no particular reason). if it's 2 boys, then stuff in your house gets broken and there's always fist-fights. I'm happy to be an only child. I got everything in the world. Suckers :P

It's still not a funny April Fool's joke.

Excellent. Encourage one to play as a tank, and the other to be a healer, and you'll never have to worry about a party again!

I used to spend my time after school in a house with 4 girl cousins, my sister, and all their associated friends. Oh the joy.

And as a side-note, I checked out the profile and under interests, I clicked on 'sadism'. The profiles contained within have scarred me for life.

I know I'm super-late, but Grats, Dave!

Incidentally that's exactly what we did this April's Fools...
