An Embarrassing Declaration

“Carol!” my husband called.

“Sorry, hang on,” I said to my friend. We were testing out a new cookie recipe for our catering business.


“Guess what,” Henry said.

“What already?” I felt exasperated – we had so much to do.

There was a long pause. I released a sigh and heard him laughing.

I was ready to give up when he suddenly sprang around the corner and yelled, “Surprise! I’m pregnant!” He proudly stood shirtless in the doorway, a silly grin on his face, his hand caressing his protruding belly.

His face turned five shades of red when he saw I wasn’t alone.
