In retrospect I should have nodded my head in agreement, but instead I take the opportunity to tell one of my stories.
"Larry Hagman's (JR Euing from Dallas) sister lived next door to my parents when I was born. Since they weren't prepared when I was born, she brought over a baby crib to help out. I slept in Larry Hagman's baby crib as a baby," I said.
I could have stopped here and it still would have been a perfectly normal story, but I continued.
"My parent's weren't prepared because I was adopted. They got a call and headed up to the hospital to pick me up. I was just a day or so old. It wasn't like I was an orphan or anything," I said looking at the new girlfriend of my friend. She starred at me with a confused look and somewhat sad eyes. It was obvious she didn't know how to react and I don't know what kind of reaction I was expecting. As soon as I said it I wish I hadn't. Once again, lesson learned. Try and control my adopted mouth.
