Today while at coffee, Stephanie gave me this prompt for a drabble -- hiccups. I hope she enjoys where I went with it.
It had been a long day. Derek was trying his best, but I could tell his patience with me had run out.
Pickles. Ice cream. Snickers. Tater Tots.
All at once.
Plus I was huge, and didn't want anyone to touch me. Not strangers putting their hands on my basketball-sized belly. Not Derek putting his hands anywhere.
I sat in the glider, grateful we'd bought it before I was due, and rocked gently, breathing deep.
When my belly began to move, I laughed. She would pick right then. There was no way to be upset when she had the hiccups.
