I Know Something You Don't Know

Apparently Barack Obama has chosen his running mate.


Okay. Then don't tell us you know who it is already. Because, that's just...lame.

With our first daughter, at some point mid-gestation, we hinted that we had already chosen her name, but we were keeping it secret. This was mostly to ward off Opinions We Did Not Solicit on our unborn/unseen daughter's name. However, the reality that there was a Name Out There and our family members did not know it was, like, torture.

So with our second daughter, we pretty much lied. We said we had no idea what we were naming her every time someone asked. And it was a little true, since we left for the hospital without an established name. But we did have an Established List. And we didn't want opinions on that either, to be honest.

My point is, when you say, "I have no idea" when someone asks what you're naming your baby (or running mate), it's pretty much a conversation stopper. It's the nanny-nanny-boo-boo aspect of "I know, but I'm not telling" that makes you look like a...TOOL. Sorry, but it's true.

I know, I know! It's good political strategy. Everyone's wondering now. And TALKING ABOUT IT. And Begging for Information. Not to mention: The Speculation.


I already know it's not Hillary Clinton, so I am just pissed.

I just can't believe it hasn't been leaked. This is the scoop of the century and no one has it???
