Spouseinbox and I have an activity we do whenever and wherever we are. This is locating baby bumps and guessing the gestation period. In practice, one will whisper to the other “8” and the other agree, or respond, “No, 9, I think she’s dropped.” We do this with fingers using Amslan (American Sign Language) for the numbers and do the same guessing between ourselves. This evening, we were eating in a local restaurant when spouseinbox leaned over and whispered, “I would say 8, except this was a guy.”
