Easy date to remember

I joined Mrs Saul today for a quick check up on Scanleyetta’s progress. (Scan revealed everything is going extremely well. Mrs Saul was feeling a bit sick and this is probably due to a very active baby kicking her in the liver – I’ve never been happier to be a man).

The doctor told us she was extremely busy, as a huge number of people had elected to have caesarians today, so their children could have 12/12/12 as their date of birth.

One women, whose request was politely declined, has asked the doctor to deliver the baby at exactly twelve minutes past twelve…

Apparently it is mainly Arabic couples who have asked for a caesarian today, although some Westerners are also represented.

The mind boggles.
