Jelly Belly

My first visit to the hospital in Cork land was going rather well, only two and a half hours in the door and I'd had my little checkout scan of the babs, with the surreal showing of ultrasound waves - looking like shafts of light passing through the little ones ribcage, and had had my interview with a student midwife answering all the questions that I'd answered some months back in the dubland hospital, and already I was with a doctor... I was delighted to hop up on the chair again when she said she'd take a look at the little un, her screen was smaller than the one I'd seen an hour and a half ago, but sure I had no problem having another peek inside and was in fact looking forward to yet another look. When I pulled up my top though, the jelly gave me away - sitting there in what's left of my belly button, some of the jelly used on the earlier scan. It was either own up or pretend I just put jelly there myself for no good reason... so I owned up "Er, that's just from the scan the nurse did earlier" I sheepishly admitted, and the doctor was delighted, "Well that saves me a job then" and I was back off that chair with nothing more than a quick run over with a measuring tape for my trouble. I'll be more careful in future....

Bet ye all thought with the title this post'd be all about me being as big as a house, well I hope you're not too dissappointed...
Do I use too many ellipses by the way...?

Ha! Hoist by your own jelly petard!
Ellipses very appropriate for pregnant women, I think.

Was it strawberry jelly?

ahhh... we used to use the same jelly on the greyhounds when we gave them deep muscle treatments... it's a surreal thing to jellyfy a dog. As for the snuggle snorkle.. you could be onto something there, mind you, could feel a bit like some sort of guantanimo torture having something strapped to your face and being very warm.. in the dark.. glad alls well with the bundle ;-)

A jelly petard! there's another invention for the list. Thanks Titus!
I'd say lemon jelly TFE, that'd be my preference, though I didn't taste it.
Jeeps watercats, there'd be really no catching them then! messy work. Thanks re the snuggle snorkle, I will proceed directly to the patent office. :-)
