Yesterday I receive an email from amazon, saying that someone “had purchased a gift from our Baby Registry”.
The email was sent to me and my wife, when I saw it, I checked that it was not the product of Phishing, went to the site, and indeed there was a baby registry to our names, and I was like… “wtf?”
Then I had a conversation with my wife, asking her if she was pregnant, for like 5 minutes I didn’t believe her, then it was all good, but it left me wondering things about how ready I’d be for a baby.

Funny how a reliable service can make a stupid mistake that even though it was just an email, is so meaningful, and in whatever the case, it could cause either surprise or a big dissapointment.
We even wondered if it was because we’ve been married for almost a year, that amazon was getting into pregnancy prediction spamming algorithms.
Good thing we’re not trying with doctors and stuff to have a baby, I guess it would’ve been a lot worse.
