Last night we had the choice of going to a birthday drinks party or the Cinema. Mafer was keen for the more social option which I thought was very brave considering that when we’re out together we both become the object of public attention. Whether they think I’m a scientific breakthrough and actually pregnant, or that I’m simulating pregnancy for an odd reason, or just a fat guy with tits, discussion will inevitably turn to my wife at my side and what part she plays in this freak show. Today was our first day in public together and understandably she felt self conscious and awkward to start; evident as she drifted a few paces behind me. That evening I was very grateful when she finally settled for the cinema and watching the film ‘Wild’ in a dark cinema out of public eye rather than mingling at the cocktail party. I did promise her that next weekend we would be extra social. The film opens with a woman embarking on a insane journey that’s she’s totally unprepared for. What an idiot.
