    Default fate

    A woman is pregnant and she got a belly cast. She was excited because of the too many shapes they can do with the cast.

    She said to her husband (who is playing a video game): Look at the ladybug.

    Her husband: Shut up. You and the Ladybugs, it's just like fate.

    What does her husband mean?

    Thanks a lot.

    I have no idea. It makes no sense. And anyone who tells his wife to "shut up" is a jerk in my book. Especially when his wife is pregnant.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    :D I think he was kiddin :)

    By the way, this is the program Kendra and the husband was "Hank Baskette"

    I just thought that the word "fate" here means something different than the common meaning. I thought it might mean "you resemble the ladybug" I don't know.

    Thanks.
