‘Slightly Bemused’ as a boy (left) and ‘Little Slightly’ (right) when she was “littler”

I am afraid I do not have anything for today, other than a little bit of news. I have been in quite a bit of a daze since I heard it. And, to be honest, quite a bit terrified.
Little Slightly has been calling a lot lately. She lives in the mid-west US, and has no idea about time difference. OK, not totally true – she does know, she just does not really care. Since she was a very wee one and wanted me to read her a story before bed, she just called. The stories are a little more grown up now, but she still calls when she wants to talk. And of course I answer.
I am in a daze because of the last conversation. For a number of years she has lived with her boyfriend. She no longer lives with her boyfriend. She lives with her fiancé, and it seems I will relatively soon (like early next year) be a father-in-law. Gulp.
And gulper! It appears that before the end of the year I just may be a grandfather.
So I have not been able to string a coherent thought since then. I am not sure when I will be able to.
So please, share this short bit of news instead of my column. Janet and Millie may soon have competition for the cutest babby, and I think I will need a stiff drink!
A much more than slightly bemused.
Slightly Bemused‘s column appears here every Wednesday.
Name that jammer, anyone?
