In this episode the boy who has got a (slightly older) girl pregnant is with her at an antenatal class and is doing a roleplay with the woman running it. She's pretending to be in labour, he's actually shitting himself.
I laughed when the woman screamed at him: "I never want you to fucking touch me again", among other things. Then I felt stupid for laughing. It's probably actually going to be like that, isn't it?
I've seen plenty of One Born Every Minute too, and most of the women featured clearly aren't in the mood to moderate their vocal output during labour. I don't blame them. There's no male equivalent of course, but I don't much fancy the idea of trying to pass a golf ball via my penis. No. The thought has made me feel a bit sick.
My wife's a gentle sort though; doesn't get angry with me often, lets me get away with my many indiscretions and is generally understanding of the fact that I'm a bit crap at a lot of stuff.
So I wonder what my labouring wife want to tell me that has been kept inside through all the time we've been together, will the floodgates open and cover me in a tsunami of criticism, justified or otherwise? Probably.
But perhaps not. I'm sure I'll let you all know once it's happened.
