Baby Blues.

Baby Blues.

A Poem by Paul Bell

The doorbell chimed
She answered
It’s a pregnant woman
She never read the no cold callers sign then, he thought
Are you going to see what she wants
Footballs on, a man should never be disturbed when the footballs on
Was it eight months ago
Just a bit of fun
Why the hell don't women take precautions
This was not going to be pleasant
Hi John, you’re probably wondering who I am
You spoke to my husband about a month ago
He says you’re great at assembling flat packed furniture
As you can see, I’m getting to the critical stage
Yeah, right, I remember
Listen, don't you worry, I’ll pop round tomorrow
Have that nursery built in no time
Thanks, John, that will be great
By the way, if it’s a boy
John was one of the names we were thinking about.

Thank you!
As is often the case, you don't mince any words! And I love that about you. There's nothing worse than the heavily-pregnant neighbor who asks an obligatory favor -- how does one refuse? I can feel the tension from here. In my younger days, I tried not to ask my friends to help me move becuz I didn't want to have to return the favor! *eeeek!* (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Gee
The only precautions taken were to make sure the boyfriends never found out and that any clap clinic visited was far enough away that no one would know you.
Another wee gem Paul

"Why the hell don't women take precautions" Typical Tone for a man. But, hey, She didn't even remember him.

LOL. Ask me Paul, How will I know? Maybe it is just natural....
things get much more time consuming than the one day stand ... damn those plumbers and repair men .. i suppose them both being so glib and blase' about the whole thing is kind of required under the circumstances ... if this is the beginnings of a soap i will be sure to watch for it ;)

Such a cool chick. He gets jittery by the minute and she hardly even remembers him. (Though the end had a nice twist)

Told you to at least maintain a diary, if you have to keep doing this Paul but listen you won't!

You know I don't do this sort of thing.
Though, diaries are dangerous things to leave around.

Haha.

Very true words. NEVER disturb us Men when the football is on! And funnily enough that is exactly what i just watched! Us Aussies are on our way to Russia in 2018!

And it seems poor John may be good at making multiple things other than just nursery furnishings!

A clever write, Paul.
