This morning there are a wealth of charming treats in pink and blue bags on the counter in the kitchen with "Someone's expecting can you guess who?" written on the tags everywhere. It's all cutely and well designed (I work in a design studio).
Guessing who seems like a REALLY bad idea with potentially a lot of pain for someone (also known as me.)
I think I'm going to stay in my cube for the morning meeting today and maybe not come out... ever.
People at work don't know about our struggles.
