9/11/01 had an interesting twist at my home.
On September 10th, in the evening, my wife and I were watching TV, and we ordered a pizza from Pizza Hut (actually, she ordered it without my knowledge, cause I dislike Pizza Hut). It arrived, and she immediately took out a piece and chomped into it. Two chews later, she spit it out. "This... tastes... RANCID." I took a bite, and though it did taste a little funny (but, two points here: 1. I eat pizza hut pizza rarely, and 2. When someone says something is bad, and for you to taste it, its never gonna taste 'normal'). She called up Pizza Hut and asked for a new pizza, and they delivered it. Knowing point #2, I said "Let me try it first". Tasted fine to me. She took a bite, and spit it out. Just then she stared at the wall a minute, and went into the bathroom.
I thought nothing of it, just continued watching TV and eating pizza.
"Josh! Come here! Look at this!"
It was a pregnancy test with the faintest (and I mean FAINTEST) line I've ever seen. "I dunno, hon... thats REALLY faint!"
On the package it read, "If there is a line, however faint it may appear, means you are pregnant."
Being the dumb male that I am, I demanded a second opinion. We ran out to krogers (grocery store), and bought 4 different tests. We came home (now it was getting pretty late), and she filled up on drinks and was able to finish 3 tests. Each one was just as faint as the first one, but by the time she was finished, the second test had a bright, bold line.
We were both tickled, but decided to wait until tomorrow morning to tell our parents.
The morning came, and we were both in a good mood. I had finished showering and was getting dressed when I witnessed the second plane hit the first on TV.
Dad was on a business trip in New Jersey, grandma lives close to the PA site.
Needless to say, it was an mixed emotions day for my family.
I have some funny stories to tell about how people reacted to my wife being pregnant if anyone is interested...
