At the Gas Station

Chloe: Mama, is that man (the gas station attendant right outside the open windows) going to have a baby?!
Me: Embarrassed silence.
Chloe: He’s really big! His belly is big. Isn’t it?
Me: More silence.
The attendant hands me the receipt and politely says “Have a good day.” As we pull away Chloe asks “Was he speaking Spanish?”
Me: No, Chloe. He was not speaking Spanish, and no, he was not pregnant. Men don’t have babies.
Chloe: Daddy seahorses have babies…
