"What's almost here? That new alfalfa hay?"
"No silly! The BABY! Spread the joyful news!"
"You mean....no!....not...Belinda's baby? Is it that time already?"
"Yes! Belinda's BABY!!! It's almost here! Spread the joyful news!"
"Okay---I'm hurrying as fast as I can!"
"All I want to know is if Bo finally finished knitting that dang crrraaaazy-colored cashmere and wool baby blanket. And did she block it properly? You've got to treat good merino wool and cashmere properly, I tell you!"
"Yes she did! So spread the joyful news---Belinda's baby is almost HERE!!!!"
"Dammit, why am I always the last one to know anything around here??"
