there's a story behind this... last weekend matt and i went to the macau grand prix, a car race that takes place on the city streets of macau. the races got pretty loud - loud enough for me to use ear plugs. i was getting nervous that the loud cars would hurt my unborn child's ears, so i started wrapping my arms around my belly or squatting everytime the machines would race past us (i'm sure i was a sight). once i got back to our apartment and my best friend google, i started "researching" whether or not i had just deafened my eggroll. as usual, google afforded me a plethora of answers so i could believe basically whatever i wanted to, and it also scared up this picture and caption of another expectant mother, concerned for her baby's hearing and well-being. girl, i'm totally feelin' you... but you just take another long drag on that cigarette honey; that will make everything all better.
