    A book dedication to Ms. Right and the yet-to-be-born

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | November 11, 2007

    My friend Shawn and I were IMing about our dedications in our books. I dedicated mine to my parents (“For Mom and Dad, who left their homeland so their children could follow their passions, and for all other moms and dads who have done the same.”)

    But his, the best I have ever seen, takes a jab at the pretentiousness of dedications and acknowledgments. It literally made me burst out laughing when it came across my screen:


    “To my future wife and kids, who,
    when I meet and conceive them,
    will likely be my love and inspiration.”
