I understand that labour is painful. I’ve never actually been through it myself, so I cannot corroborate it from personal experience, but I am an observant fellow and I have experienced it through B on three occasions so I am fairly confident when I say that it didn’t seem like she was enjoying it. Which is what makes what I am about to tell you quite so impressive, from my point of view at least.
Firstly though a bit of background. After all, you know me, I’m not happy until I’ve written 1000 inconsequential words before finally getting to the punchline.
