This is going to be the week, folks, I can feel it. The poor Duchess can probably also feel it at this point–it seems like she’s been pregnant forever! Remember her first official post-announcement appearance, giving out the Sports Personality of the Year Award and everyone said “ooh, look at the baby bump” and I wanted to hit aforementioned individuals because, really, there was not a whiff of a bump for the next month??
Yes, I’m sure you all remember, as do Becks and Bradley Wiggins.
The New York Times is still reporting on the biggest non-event of the year–that is, until it becomes one of the biggest events of the year!
Last week at work I announced at our company-wide meeting that, though I would not be taking time off for the birth of the Royal baby, they should expect me to be hyper when the occasion arose. There was a pause and one of my coworkers looked at me, confused: “You’re pregnant??” She asked. She thought I had said “the real baby,” not Royal baby, and was wondering how I could be so flippant about this. I’m surprised this is only the first time someone has mistaken my exuberance for an actual life event and not just a life event happening to someone I don’t know.
What are your predictions, readers? Boy? Girl? Tomorrow? Thursday?? The Duchess of Cornwall told well-wishers to expect an appearance “by the end of the week” and I sure hope she’s right!
