My beautiful wife and I made an exciting discovery in December 2004...we were pregnant with our first child! We were extremely excited, but weren't sure if we should tell everyone at first.
Well, those of you who go to church know that this kind of news doesn't stay secret for long among your church family! More and more people seemed to find out with each passing HOUR!
Therefore, we decided one Sunday night that we would tell the teenagers. We went to Mazzio's, put some tables together, ordered some pizza and sat down.
Incidentally, one of our church's elders, his wife, and another couple were seated at a table not ten feet away.
When conversation temporarily died down, I went for it. "Guess what, guys?! Me and Tracy have some good news!"
The girls, of course, started screaming immediately! They knew what we were going to say even before we said it!
The guys, on the other hand, gave us blank stares until I told them our good news.
One of them got a big smile on his face, slapped my back, and proclaimed (for half the restaurant to hear...including the elder), "Way to go, man...you knocked her up!"
