The money-making brainstorming process usually goes something like this:
A Recent Conversation With My Boyfriend
Me: If I ever give birth, I want someone to give me a trophy at the end.
Chris: Isn't the baby kind of the trophy?
Me: Um...no. I want a trophy with a little gold person on top and an inscription that says, "You Gave Birth."
Chris: But isn't it reward enough to hold your little newborn baby in your arms?
Me: Nope. Trophy.
Me: Actually, maybe I'll make the trophy myself and sell it for, like, 20 bucks. People love stupid little tchotchkes like that!
Chris: People do love to buy stupid little tchotchkes.
I'm basically gonna just find old soccer trophies and write "You Gave Birth" on them. If you want one, you can buy it for $20 (does not include shipping and handling). I'll mail it to you within a year. Maybe. Or not. Probably not.
*It's a true story that when I was a wee child, I asked my parents why we don't have "sticker stamps." I found it ridiculous that we had to lick postage stamps when we obviously had the technology to make self-adhesive stickers. This would have been about 1986. Although I just did some research and according to Wikipedia, they did try a self-adhesive stamp in 1974, but it sucked. It wasn't until 1989 that the post office issued sticker stamps that didn't suck. NOTE: I did not double check to make sure this information is accurate.
