Foot IN Mouth Disease

A few days ago a friend, whom I hadn’t seen in a while, informed me that he and his wife were pregnant. Here’s the dialogue:

Me: Congratulations! How far along is she?

Him: (over 20) weeks

Me: Cool – so do you know if you’re having a girl or a boy?

Him: A little girl

Me: Awww – that’s great! Have you picked out a name?

Him: Yes – it’s (traditional male name) (traditional male name)

Me: Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you said you were having a girl

Him: Yes, we are

Me: Ohhhh….

What’s put YOUR foot in your mouth lately?
