learning curve

A snippet of conversation I overheard on my lunch break:

Man walking up hill: "Hi!"
Woman walking down: "Hey!  How's that new baby?"
Man: "Oh great!  He lost all his hair!"

Me, to myself: "YOUR BABY LOST ALL HIS HAIR AND YOUR JUST STANDING THERE!?!  What happened?  Is he SICK?!  DEAR GOD SOMEONE SAVE THE SICK BABY WITH NO HAIR!!!"

Woman: "Oh yeah, he lost all that peach fuzz?"
Man: "Yeah, and now he's growing his real hair!  Its great!"
Woman: "See ya!"
Man: "See ya!"

Me, to myself: "Wow, if I had a kid and its hair fell out, and I had never heard this conversation, I really would have overreacted."
