I went for a drink with Laura and Emma this evening. Laura is pregnant. I’ve known this for a while but it’s been too early to tell anyone else and I’ve been struggling to keep it a secret and not blurt it out in a tic. Laura has now started to tell other people and tonight she told Emma.
I was so relieved the risk of my Tourettes stealing Laura’s thunder had passed that I kept ticcing, “Emma’s pregnant” and “I’m pregnant” all evening.
