Sometimes you have to stick with the tried and true

I was just thinking that by the time you’re seven months or more into a pregnancy, the expression “little bun in the oven” really isn’t satisfactory to describe the amplitude of what you’re carrying. So I was trying to think of something that takes up as much of the space in an oven as a third-term baby takes up in a womb — but quickly realized I’d really rather people not refer to my baby as “your little turkey in the oven.”

    Turkey is exactly what came to my mind as well.

    What about something like, “your little 4-layer cake in the oven?”

    Mrs. O, we must have great minds. And Barbara, hmmm, I think that idea’s making me a little too hungry.

    Perhaps a whole wheat loaf?

  5. zstitches says:

    Jen, I think that’s one I can live with — my large breech wheat loaf. 🙂

    I had to go to Google, Jason, where I learned:

    “Capon, for those not in the know, is a castrated male chicken. Upon losing its sex drive, a capon apparently just sits and eats in the shade and gets fat and plump juicy.”

    Uh, I think I’ll stick with Jen’s large loaf.
