I’m Like a Drug-Sniffing Dog…But For Pregnant Ladies.

Morgan called tonight with lovely news: His wife, Tara, is expecting their first child in February.

I was delighted, but not surprised. I was at a party at their house a couple of weeks ago. When Tara opened the door to me, the first thing I thought was Hey! She’s pregnant!

Of course, I didn’t say anything. You don’t, really, unless you have an excess of poor manners. But it did make me think.

The same thing happened when Genevieve was pregnant. One day I looked at the back of her head and I knew she was upduffed.

In both cases, it didn’t seem like anything physical tipped me off. Both women looked as they always did. So why did I know? Am I now hyper-sensitive to Zygote Riding Along pheromones? Or is it the latent alleged psychic streak from my father’s side manifesting itself in a new and not-so-useful fashion?

I don’t know why it happens, but it’s kind of a cool trick.

    No way, dude. Awesome!
    What the hell is happening? It’s raining babies.

    You know, the Weathergirls were going to go with that instead of “It’s Raining Men!” but it didn’t scan as well, and would not have become such a great gay anthem.

    I don’t know what’s happening. They’re going to have to widen the sidewalks for more strollers soon.

    I have never heard the word “upduffed” before and I love it.

    Cool trick!

    ‘Upduffed’ is from my British friends. It’s good, isn’t it?
