Funny New Yorker Cartoon

From the New Yorker Magazine

"Are you sure you're ovulating now?"

I was flipping through an old New Yorker from June and in the cartoon caption contest they had this line submitted as one of the entries for this cartoon. Pretty hilarious! I wonder if the submitter is going through fertility treatments, but God bless her for a funny line. Unfortunately it didn't win the contest even though in my mind it far beat the others. I suppose most readers (and most New Yorker editors) can't appreciate the great lengths it takes to get pregnant. I don't know about you, but it seems that all business trips, family visits, pre-planned vacations fall at the same time as ovulation. So I know I would love to strap a parachute on my hubby, and on myself for that matter.

I have a frequent traveler for a husband, and that cartoon captures the spirit of 2006-2008 for us!

Nice entry. I love the cards you made. LOL

I think the cards Hallmark is making is a step in the right direction. I would rather get a card from someone then have them say "are you ok?" Getting a card means I know they care but I don't have to feel obligated to answer their question "are you ok" often my response is either. "I'm fine" or "I don't want to talk about it"
