Last night, I visited a friend I hadn't seen in several weeks, and, there, I discovered the happy news that she is expecting. The knowledge came when I walked in the door, and saw her slender figure turn to the side, revealing her large belly, a fact she accentuated it by motioning her hands around it like a crystal ball.
The thing is, it took me a split moment to realize what she was telling me, because for the first second or so, while I intellectually noticed her large stomach, I thought she was just intentionally protruding it to comment on my own expanding stomach. The night before, I had purchased my first pair of pants in my new, hopefully temporary, size. It's hard to believe that just three years ago, my waist was 32 inches.
It's all a good motivation to get to the gym this morning before some last minute shopping.
