I asked her what I could make with 2 heads of cabbage. I also texted two other friends at the same time, with the same question. I then forgot that I texted that.
Later on I got two texts in a row from my friend in labor:
"Epidurals Freakin' Rule"
I was so surprised that she named her boy Kimshee after she had mentioned a whole list of non-Asian names before she left for the hospital. I was so convinced that this was the baby's name that I phoned another of our mutual frend's to tell her that the baby was named Kimshee and where did that name come from?
After much back and forth we decided that Kimshee was not the baby's name, but must be a word for like a zen place, like OM....and it was the follow up to the epidural text, NOT the announcement of the baby's name.
It wasn't until later that afternoon when my friend texted me a third time, in response to my question: What? You named the baby Kimshee?:
"Kimshee is what you can do with 2 cabbages." Oops.
I am pretty sure I won't be able to call that baby by his given name....he will be Kimshee for a while.
