~ 44. Nasruddin the Proud Father ~

Nasruddin was running through the town square.
A friend noticed him and said, "Nasruddin! Wait a moment and talk! I haven't seen you in such a long time."
"I really don't have time to stop and talk," Nasruddin explained. "I went out to do the shopping, and now I need to hurry home."
"Why the rush?"
"My wife just had a baby!" Nasruddin said proudly.
"What wonderful news!" replied his friend. "I'm very glad for you. And is it a boy or a girl?"
Nasruddin stared at him in amazement. "Yes, it is!" he answered. "But how did you know?"
