Hey, L.A.: If You Want Your Future Kid to Have the Best Birthday Ever, Have Sex. Right Now.
There's about to be a pretty sweet-lookin' day on the calendar, if you hadn't noticed: November 11, 2011, or 11-11-11.
Adorable, right?! It's like a nice little row of golf flags, or a line of Santa Monica palm trees on a windy day, or wilty grass, or something. It is, in fact, so sweet-lookin', that one might fancy it a damn fine date on which to birth a tiny human.
And, according to a fertility expert on KNX news radio, this very day -- 2-18-11 (not as adorable) -- is the ideal day on which to, er, conceive the thing, if you indeed wish it to be born on 11-11-11.
But we must ask.
Choosing your baby's due date before your baby even exists: Cool, or psycho?
On the one hand, it would give your future stud a great icebreaker for meeting easily impressed L.A. chicks at bars (and give the bouncer something to chuckle about on the way in), but on the other hand, you're probably setting yourself up to be the most overbearing parent since the borderline-abusive "Toddlers and Tiaras" set.
You wouldn't be alone, though. The sexpert on KNX says she's "definitely had parents who, while pregnant, want to try to choose the birthday." (OK, the more we think about it, that's really creepy.)
AOL wants you to "get busy" today, too, but has no guarantees:
For women with a regular 28-day menstrual cycle, this week, ending tomorrow, is prime baby-making time, but there are several factors that determine a baby's birthday. Experts warn that conception on Friday doesn't definitively ensure an 11/11/11 baby.
"There's absolutely no guarantee," Rhonda Gannon, a nurse at Boston IVF in Waltham, Mass., told AOL News.
The reporter then goes on to talk about menstrual cycles and stuff, but we'll spare you from that hell and recommend simply that you cross your fingers and do the deed as many times as libido and workday allow. If it's any motivation, your little chubber will also have a major motion picture commemorating his big day:
Awww. You could even name him Todd Bridges, in hopes that he grow up to be the second greatest B-list horror-movie star of his generation. TGIF!
