Scenario to Avoid

From the Words of Wisdom Department (names changed to protect bystanders):

I was talking to Burt one day and he asked, "Hey, have you seen Julie's new baby?"

"What, she had a baby?" I exclaimed. "Wow, good for her! You know I thought she'd been putting on a little weight, but I never would have guessed she was pregnant -- she didn't show it at all."

A momentary awkward silence followed, then Burt said, "Sean, Julie adopted."

"Ah," I replied.
