The printer has been broken since Wednesday. I was barely in the office at all last week and did not know of the dilemma until Friday morning. I asked why no one (coworker and her intern) said anything to myself or our boss. We could’ve had it fixed in no time. Anyway, yesterday I called the repair people. They had to order a part. Today it’s up and running again.
While I have my printer at my disposal to complete my billing, etc., I have been daydreaming instead. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube. I’ve been looking up pregnancy pictures and watching pregnancy announcement videos.
Nope. I’m not pregnant.
I’m just dreaming about the day I find out that I am…
Knowing me, I’ll get pregnant accidentally on purpose so that I have a baby before I’m dead. (This melancholy thing is vicious towards my self-confidence.) I was thinking about how my parents would react. The videos I’ve watched feature couples sharing the “happy news”. In my foreseen situation, I would be making an announcement to my family in my parents’ home with happiness in my heart, dread in my stomach, and nervousness on my face. I would be ecstatic. But, my family would not be. They would be thoroughly disappointed.
For now I’ll daydream. Maybe sometime soon I can get serious about my accidental pregnancy.
