[Extract] 'I'm pregnant again' she said. 'I just wanted to say thank you'. She had approached me at the supermarket checkout. I had been packing the trolley while my wife paid the bill, our usual routine. My wife looked at her, then looked at me, unspoken questions in her eyes.
I'm not sure if you are supposed to be happy when another woman tells you that she is pregnant in front of your wife, but I was. Tears started to form and I had that choking feeling in my voice. 'That's fantastic news. Thank you for letting me know.'
That was really how the story ended for me, rather than how it began.
