FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: CORRECTED VERSION
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Ron L. and Christine K. are expecting their first child in January 2004.
Christine, who has existed almost solely on Pop-Tarts and Fig Newtons for two months, is due Jan. 22. In a further fit of domestic euphoria, the couple is also buying a house in Ann Arbor that’s got a rosebush and a roof and everything.
The couple remains “in extended negotiations” regarding possible names, although Christine favors the name Niebelungenleid. “I think Niebelungenleid L. has a nice ring,” the mom-to-be said.
Ron could not be reached for comment, though he was recently overheard at Washtenaw Dairy, a local ice cream parlor, bemoaning the upcoming due date. “That means we can’t claim the child tax credit for 2003!” he wailed. “Couldn’t we at least get a dog?”
