My dear friend is pregnant. I am one of the few people who knows this, at present, although she’s close enough to “the mark” that I imagine she and her husband will start telling others soon (if they’re not already).
Today she sent me the following gChat:
And then she proceeded to disappear from gChat. Of course, my head is spinning. “Twins! I bet it’s twins. She’s totally having twins. Or triplets. OMG. Triplets. Wow. She’s having quadruplets…There are multiples in her family history, right?” (At the time I’m totally remembering that there are multiples in her family. Let me say that there are no multiples in her family history, but this is what disappearing from gChat will do to a person.)
Please, readers. Don’t do this to your friends.
