Today I was talking to a girlfriend who is pregnant. I am familiar enough with symptoms of pregnancy to know certain aspects of pregnancy may lead to phenomena’s such as ‘baby-brain’ or ‘pregnancy brain’ – aka a certain level of forgetfulness. Today it wasn’t my friend who couldn’t remember things. IT WAS ME!
She was reminding me of her weekend ante-natal classes.
My response “so you did extreme ante-natalling?”
Response: “thats right, we did an intensive course over the weekend, rather than multiple weeknights.” She manages this all without sarcasm. Or derision. Both these are words I can recall.
Intensive. Intensive. NOT EXTREME. Extreme (definition: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/extreme) ante-natal classes would be, perhaps, those conducted at Base Camp 2 Everest, or in the cradle of an active volcano. Or maybe, on the moon.
Ps. My friend thinks giving birth on the moon would be AWESOME. If not a little extreme.
