Inconceivable

As we were getting ready to attend a wedding reception, Natalie brought me a children's book she planned to give to the couple...and their baby.

"Um, Nat they don't have a baby," I said.

"What? But they got married, right?" she asked.

"Yes, but they just married last month.  They don't have kids yet.  Also, some people get married, but don't ever have children," I responded.

Uncharacteristically, she pondered my words before speaking. Then, with a furrowed brow asked, "You mean just a man and a woman?"

"That's right," I said.

She set the book down, then turned on her heel and stormed off to her room.
