Geez - what's with the gender reveal thing??? Ugh...Awesome! Today's Prudie:
When I was in high school my dream was to become a professional writer. My teachers were very encouraging but my parents refused to allow me to study creative writing in college, saying I needed to pursue something "safe" like nursing, which I did. The writing urge has never completely gone away and in the last couple of years I've come up with a unique (I think) way of dealing with it. I compose and send in made-up letters to advice columns and keep track of how many are published. Apparently I'm pretty convincing, because out of the two dozen or so I've made up, over half have made it into the paper. I get a kick out of seeing my letters published but I'm beginning to wonder if this is a little strange. I chose you to receive my first "real" letter because I usually agree with your advice. So please give me your honest opinion on my hobby. I don't feel that I'm hurting anyone but is this a strange thing for someone to do?

I'd hope that the sonogram wasn't clear enough to show the gender.
