The mom directly across from me, who I didn’t really know and hadn’t seen at many games, leaned in conspiritorially and asked, “Who has five children? I’d kill myself if I had that many kids.”
Dopey me, I actually felt embarrassed for her. I figured she couldn’t hear all that well and didn’t know who they were talking about and would regret her comment when she learned it was the man and woman sitting directly across from her.
I shouldn’t have worried. The coach seemed flummoxed, pointed at us, and then quickly engaged in a conversation on the other side of the table. The woman, didn’t appear to be embarrased though.
“You two have five kids?” she laughed. “You seem like normal people.”
Yup. She actually said it.
