everybody's doing it
"No, just ditzy or lazy." Ellie shrugged.
"Lon must be so happy." Syd didn't know what else to say.
Syd felt her baby kick then.
"Woo." Syd just stopped. Imaging how big the baby might. How it was lodged in her belly. The science of it amazed her.
"What?" Ellie looked at her. Syd was in a stretchy extra large gray Men's tank. She wore a thin white T underneath and gray leggings. She was definitely showing now. Or maybe she just wanted to show.
"It just surprises me, sometimes." Syd told her. "I'll be so happy, then I think, God, I should be doing something. I feel bad that I didn't find a job. I'm sure Eric's Mom is ready to knock some sense into me. Really, I don't mean to be so selfish. But I feel like I'm this island moving very slowly waiting for a volcano to errupt."
"Thats kind of scary." Ellie told her.
"I dunno. I mean, I haven't thrown up, but I get so sleepy. And I hate the thought of breakfast in the morning, but then at 4 in the afternoon I want a bowl of cornflakes and really cold milk." Ellie explained.
"You are eating for 2." Syd told her. "But your complexion looks so good. Mine is horrible." She was still fighting pimples.
"You look great." Ellie smiled.
Syd smiled to. She hoped everything went OK for Ellie.
