Ramblings of a mother

The day I found out that I was not born!

One day my husband and I were discussing birthmarks. Yep, birthmarks, because we have weird, random conversations like that. My son and husband share the same birthmark, however, I do not have one.

Now, this conversation happened a few years ago, you know when Google was the all knowing but not as advanced as it is today. So I decided, like everyone today, to google what it means if I do not have a birthmark. At the time, Google popped the most amazing answer to me. According to Google, not having a birthmark meant that I was not born!

Hah! Imagine, my entire 23 years on this earth was a lie! I was not born. I assumed this meant that the stork story was true and I was dropped off at the doorstep in a basket, all fat and cute. It was clear to me why that stork story was invented.

Anyways, nowadays, if you google what it means not to have a birthmark, you get quiet a good explanation of what they are (Vascular birthmarks – a red, pink, or purple blemish – are caused by abnormal blood vessels under the skin. Some people are born with pigmented birthmarks; these are usually brown and are caused by the clustering of pigment cells.)

On the other hand, you also get paranormal versions of why you don’t have a birthmark (it means you never had a second life.)

So all in all, I give you two pieces of advice.

  1. Google is NOT always right (most of the time, but not all the time)
  2. Even though I do not have a birthmark, I surely was born! 😅😅😅

Do you have a birthmark? Or any funny google stories! Feel free to share!
