Book of Uteronomy, Chapter 1

Terms I Cannot Bring Myself to Use

1. "Baby Dance."

Seriously, y'all, this is just awful. I've seen this expression on way too many TTC message boards. It's not "baby dancing," it's procreative sex - intercourse between two consenting adults for the purpose of achieving conception. Call it sex, doing it, getting it on, screwing...anything but "baby dancing." That term is a set of Lee Press-On fingernails down the blackboard of my soul.

And then there are people who abbreviate the term and make it "BD," which makes the whole thing far too close to both "BM" and "VD" - two things I don't want associated with the action in my boudoir.

"Baby dancing" is what happened in the early years of "Ally McBeal," (ooga-chaka, ooga-chaka) and despite my love for Ally, "Hooked on a Feeling" and Nick and Nora jammies, this expression has got to go.

  1. LMAO!!!!!!!!! I just started reading your blog, and I can tell that there will be many laughs and hopefully good news to come. I agree with you 10,000% about the "baby dancing" term. I can't even bring myself to use "dear husband." Anyway, loved your shout out to Ally McBeal. I've never laughed so hard as when I first saw that awesome dancing baby. Cheers!
