Why is it good to have a baby boy?

February 21, 2007
Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 3:44 pm

At brunch on Sunday, we at with Eric and Dave at Magdalene’s house in the Rome suburbs.  She typically invites lots of friends once a month after church.  Good food, and interesting company, as the majority of the attendees are priests or students from the Catholic divinity schools of Rome.

 

One particular conversation from lunch, which Kerry missed (no doubt checking out the bathroom) included Travis, Eric, and a priest, Father S.

Father S:  The best weather in Rome is in the fall. You get long, beautiful stretches of weather.

Travis:  Well, the timing is better for us to visit now.  We’re expecting a baby in June, so travel to Rome will be off for a while after that.

Father S:  Congratulations. A boy, I trust.

Travis (slightly puzzled):  All signs point to yes.

Father S:  Good.  We need more boys.  You can’t make a priest out of a girl. 

Eric:  You can’t make a priest out of a Methodist, either.

  1. I’m trying to catch up on all that I missed out on in just over a week of not visiting. I’m laughing out loud on this one. That is awesome.

  2. Yeah, I couldn’t believe it when Travis and Eric told me about the conversation! So funny!
