LMAO that was hilarious!
It's a good point, too. I think that's how a lot of parents drop the "baby bomb" on the other children. And when you see it in a poly context, it's so obviously the wrong way to do it that it makes it actually funny (although it wouldn't be that funny if it was really happening to you, of course).
