Babies and Ring Tones

We recently moved back to the United States and are adjusting to living in the "big city".   Yesterday we were getting one of the kids the last of their vaccinations when we heard "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" being played over the hospital PA system. We were pretty busy with the business at hand so we didn't ask about the music.  While we were waiting the mandatory post vaccination 15 minutes in the waiting room, we hear the melody again.

Schatz: What was that?

Me: I'm not sure. 

(a minute or so later)

Me:  I'll bet they play that whenever a baby is born.

Schatz:  No.  It's probably not that.

Me:  Go ask the receptionist.

Schatz (who has become self conscious): I can't ask that.  That's not a clever question.

Me:  You don't have to ask if a baby was born.  You can ask the receptionist why the music is playing.

Schatz went up to the receptionist and had a short conversation.

Schatz (Speaking loudly from across the room):  You were right!  Every time a baby is born they get their own ringtone!
