Overheard at the car place today

As my car's oil was changed at the dealership today, I sat in the waiting room grading papers. The receptionist picked up her cell phone, and I heard one end of the conversation.

Hello?
Really?
REALLY???
Oh my GOD! That's WONDERFUL! WOW!
(pause)
So, was it a boy or a girl?
Was it a boy or a girl?


At this point, I'm smiling. It's great to hear somebody so joyful over a friend's news.

There's a pause. She dials her cell phone.

Guess what???

BRITNEY SPEARS HAD HER BABY!!!
