Lessons In Stalling Future Grandparents

My wife and I have only been married a few years but we've been together quite a while. When we decided to get married, it was no surprise to anyone but now we're getting heat from our parents about having kids. I found a sure-fire way to dodge that bullet temporarily. I thought I'd share.

When asked by my mother-in-law (who I dearly love, by the way) if we'd done any more thinking about having kids, I said that indeed we had. In fact, I'd already come up with names. She seemed elated until I proceeded to rattle off fake porn names I came up with on the fly: Champagne Flute, Crystal Chandelier, Butch Stryker, Misty get the drift.

Needless to say she was suitably horrified. I think she eventually got the fact that I was joking but we haven't heard a whole lot about grandkids lately.
