This morning I discovered that one of my friends had posted a slew of pregnancy / motherhood / labor books on her GoodReads account.  As I tend to shy away (read: run away) from Facebook, I'm typically oblivious to any big announcements that people make.  So I sent her a quick email - Is this in anticipation of some good news?

You know how the saying goes... when you assume, you make an ass out of you and me.

Not pregnant.  She is studying to for her doula* certification and had tagged those books as reference guides to help her through her coursework.  Insert foot / keyboard in mouth.  Never shall I make assumptions again, particularly those involving pregnancies.
