Day 180, week 37: announcement

Today BusyBodyBusyBody announced publicly that she’s pregnant.  Very publicly in fact.  In Chambers Tea.

“Excuse me, everybody, but I’d like to make a little announcement.  Some of you might already have heard but I would just like to say that I’m going to be having a baby.  I will finish my pupillage and then take a couple of months out before returning to the Bar.  Thank you.”

Stunned silence and a few open mouths.  No mention of the identity of the father and when I chatted to her afterwards she told me that she probably wouldn’t do tests to find out who he was unless she got into financial difficulties and needed support.  In the meantime, FanciesHimself (who knows nothing of the possibility of OldSmoothie being the father) got wind of this announcement and quietly took BusyBody to one side and proposed to her in the photocopying room.  She apparently thanked him very much but declined.  I don’t foresee OldSmoothie taking the same level of responsibility somehow.  Since the announcement, he has disappeared from chambers and is apparently off next week “at the dentist”.
