"I think my belly grew 5 inches yesterday."

My sleep addled mind tried to comprehend this bit of news while Fabulous Babe turned from side to side looking at herself. Still foggy from my stay in slumberland I asked her to turn profile.

If you've ever watched the Beatles cartoon "Yellow Submarine" one of the most memorable of the Blue Meanies are the "Snapping Turtle Turks" who have huge stomachs lined with gigantic shark teeth. Looking at my wife this morning I was struck by the comparison.

Instead of pointing this out I fell back on my safest path:

"I don't think you can hide the pregnancy much longer."

That got me a grin so I must have hit the right chord after all.
