What Came First The Curry or The Contractions.
So we did it, not have a baby, not yet anyway but
we did have a curry, last night and a big one at that.
It was a special curry night at the same pub where we experienced Death by Pork a couple of weeks ago. Last night, nine dishes, yes nine dishes and that's not including the rather excellent dessert. It was all in there, from mouth watering onion bhajis and samosas to start that literally melted on your tongue, through to exotic oriental fusion duck and lamb concoctions for the mains. There was the obligatory curry quiz with some dreadful punny answers.
How might one greet an Indian meal in the street ?
6 out of 10 was the winning score.
And indeed this morning it appears that wifey may well "finally" be on the way.
But was it the curry what brought it on ? Or was it simply us doing what everyone else does and trying everything in the book for so long that one of them had to coincide with the actual event ?
And the things we tried. I'm half the man I was before the weekend !
Anyway it's still not imiminent, the birth of a baby that is. Currently we have something going on every forty five minutes. It's been like this all night. We have rung the Doc and he says we have to wait for the "ouch count" to go down to every five minutes before we even think about going near a hospital.
So once again, it's business as usual until then but if I had to bet I would say by tomorrow night, midnight, at the latest there will be a new little boy or girl in the Evans clan.
So, I will see you on the radio. Five past five tonight 02.09.2009.
