Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

14 Oct

Big Announcement:

For the past two weeks, this blog seems to have been all about birthdays, poetry and head colds.

Here’s the Big Announcement:


This is a photograph of me, pregnant with Spud:

Here’s one from a different angle:

Things don’t get much bigger than that.  

Actually, that’s a big fat lie.  Whales, mountains and my chocolate stash are bigger.  Spud is bigger now (upwards, not outwards).  My ego is bigger (because you keep saying nice things to me even though strictly forbidden).  The tissue pile in my bin is bigger than the tissue pile in the tissue box (still milking it).

Lots of things are bigger.  Including my stomach, sixteen years on.

A vet was feeling ill and went to see his doctor. The doctor asked the usual questions, about symptoms, how long had they been occurring, etc., when the vet interrupted him: “Hey look, I’m a vet. I don’t need to ask my patients these kind of questions; I can tell what’s wrong just by looking. Why can’t you?”

The doctor nodded, looked him up and down, wrote out a prescription, handed it to him and said, “There you are. Of course, if that doesn’t work, we’ll have to have you put down.”
