The art of misdirection
I recently found that I'm pregnant. Woohoo! I have planned a surprise for my partner on Valentine's day. But, this week is my "red week". He is so aware of when it arrives and when I'm off from "red week". Since bloating is a regular monthly symptom for me, I told him... "man I am so bloated. Dang period!" He said "oh, dang, really?" ... then the next time I went to the bathroom, I unwrapped a tampon and threw the wrapper and applicator away. That way he sees "I'm on my period"
I feel mischievous but also excited !
