While standing around the water cooler you over hear a conversation between a group of your colleagues and it goes a little something like this:
Colleague #1: Did you hear Gretchen is now pregnant?
Colleague #2: No I didn’t, but I did hear Tom’s wife is expecting twins!
Colleague #1: Didn’t they just get married two months ago?
Colleague #2: Yep! Crazy!
Colleague #3: Jane is pregnant too. She just found out on Friday.
Colleague #2: I heard Angela in the billing department is due early summer.
Colleague #1: Did you hear about Linda? This will be her third in under five years!
Colleague: #2: Is she back with Tim or that one guy from the Christmas party?
Colleague #1: Back with Tim.
Colleague #3: Wow! That makes 11 co-workers pregnant!
Colleague #1: There must be something in the water!
Ummm…no! You have been drinking this same water from the same water cooler for months and you are still not pregnant. Listen up ol’ colleagues of mine! There is nothing in the water! You know because you foolishly convinced yourself that maybe some type of pregnancy hormone was actually lurking in the water, and you have been drinking bottle after bottle. But would you like to know what is actually in that water? After much research you have discovered there is iron, selenium, magnesium, zinc, chromium, cadmium, mercury, nitrate, fluoride, bacteria, arsenic, and perhaps some delicious lead.
Therefore unless a fertilized egg or a fertility doctor is swimming around inside of that water cooler, there is nothing in the sparkling H2O that made your whole office pregnant. Perhaps Linda from sales and marketing is just a tad bit…well, never mind. She is fertile. Let’s just call her fertile.
Cheers from my water cooler to yours!
