I spent the day with Leila ... we took our bikes to Hermosa where her boyfriend works. He took pity on my bike immediately and tuned it up before our ride.
I made a lot of comments on this ride about how much weight I've gained...but only in my mid region. She said out loud that she had also gained weight in the same way but told me later that she'd noticed my growing belly.
When we returned to Los Feliz, I dropped her off at home so she could prep an arepa dinner while I stopped at Rite Aid to buy beers and a First Response pregnancy test. I took the test after dinner when I got home and sure enough there were the tell tale parallel lines.
Matt had left that morning for Sebastapol so I spent the night alone trying to figure out how I felt about this news.
