he makes me laugh a good deal

While reading Fearfully and Wonderfully Made by Dr. Paul Brand & Philip Yancey

Me:  John can I read you something.

John: sure. (listening intently)

Me: "The female runner still lags behind the male, and blame rests on the pelvis.  The projections on the man's pelvis allow for more powerful muscles, but a woman equipped with them could not bear a child.  Similarly, a man's hip sockets are close together, nearer the center of gravity, which enables more efficient movement.  If a woman's were similarly designed, there would be no room for the baby's head to extrude.  So the odd pelvic bone represents a summation of many different requirements.  When a woman wishes she could run faster or sway less or have a narrower base, let her know that the survival of the human race depends  upon her being just the shape she is."

John:  Wow . . . you are so slow and its for your baby.

note: I don't have a baby.
