Sooooo. Sooooo. My cousin S, who is the youngest in my family at 23, called me today for some advice. I am a nurse after all, and a Labor and Delivery one at that. Now, S called me to tell me that she was late…..with her period……….
She took a cheap pregnancy test, and got a faint 2nd line. A faint second line.
ARE YOU SHITTING ME???
What is this, fuck with my head month?
This girl. I love her to death, but she sniffs paint! Her and her husband live with her parents! He can’t keep a job! They can’t even afford to take care of themselves much less a baby!!!!!!!!!
I wanted to fall out screaming with the injustice of it all. But instead, I calmly reassured her and told her to pee on a stick in the morning. I told her to call me when she does to let me know how it goes(am I a glutton for punishment or what?). I thought it was well done. She’ll never know that I wanted to reach through the phone and scratch her eyeballs out.
Why Lord? Why not me?
