Inventing Conspiracy Theories

[posting delayed by some days due to server outage]

I’ve invented a conspiracy theory. I reckon this telephone conversation took place some time on Friday.

“Sophie, hello, it’s Philip, listen the Family needs a favour. When’s your baby due?”
“In about a month. Why?”
“Damn. Too far away. Ah well, that needn’t matter. It can be early.”
“Er… what?”
“Well, you know Charles has got himself in a bit of a fix with the media.”
“Yes, but what does that have to do with me or my baby?”
“Babies trump sex scandals in tabloid headlines. You’ll get him off the front pages.”
“But it’s not due yet.”
“Not to worry, medical science is wonderful these days.”
“You can’t be serious.”
“Ambulance is on the way now. It’ll be with you in about ten minutes.”

What do you think? It could have happened!
