Some of My Friends Have Their Babies in a Transformer

There is a hospital here in Houston.

I drive by it every single day, atleast twice a day.

Sometimes 4 or 5 times a day.

On the top of this hospital is an architectural masterpiece that makes everyone that sees it go, "Huh?".

This hospital is actually a Transformer.

I realized that the other day as I drove by. I finally realized what it was.

It will henceforth be referred to as Optimus Prime or MegaTron.

Several of my girlfriends have delivered their sweet little ones in this hospital. In fact, when I mentioned this whole situation on Facebook the other day, my hilarious friend Amy commented: "My lady doctor is in Optimus Prime's helmet".

As I was looking for pictures of the hospital, I came across the architect's rendering of what he wanted the finished product to look like. He absolutely wanted it to look like a Transformer.

We're still quite a ways away from having babies.... but I think I'd like to deliver there. It seems like it would be an adventure. I don't even think I would need an epidural.


  1. LOL! I worked for 2 yrs at a professional building next to that hospital, and I remember seeing the construction on the way to work everyday and thinking, "What the....?" I finally have closure to my years of wondering. Thank you, haha! :o)

  2. That last shot of it is um...well, you summed it up perfectly! So funny!

  3. I remember being in this hospital when I was little, and it was just a tiny little building!

    Our financial planner's office is down the street, and he told us that that entire top part is an executive office that you can rent out for like several hundred thousand dollars. So weird!!

  4. This is too funny! I delivered there and LOVED it! You are so right though. It does look quite futuristic!
