ghastly fun to read!
Very original, very quirky, and very entertaining. As long as you're not a pregnant hypochondriac. I remember being worried about having "normal" babies. And I remember that vague sense of horror, even through the drug-induced haze, when I saw these jet-black feet sticking out of bins. I thought I had Rosemary's baby after all. But no, the black soles were, I later realized, for foot-printing. Still, this story reminded me what the various kinds of emotions were that swirled around the life-changing event of having babies. But it did so in a very light-hearted way. For a short story, it's impressive how many little twists and turns there are. This is a highly satisfying morsel of a read.
