“Do you want
a boy
or a girl?”

Expectant parents have been asked this question
since we realized it could be one or the other.
And most reply the same way.

“I don’t care, as long as they’re healthy.”

We say this,
and we try to mean it.

The day comes and we have our
healthy pink or blue.

But sometimes the blue covers up the pink,
and it turns out
that healthy isn’t what was wanted
after all.
