Sooner or Later - A Royal Bet
Don't you just hate it when people speculate if other people are expecting? It's sooo no one's businsess.
I get a tad miffed when someone who isn't among my hierachary of besties inquires about the ambitions of my womb. It's a decision that is emotional, private, personal. People shouldn't go nosing around about it.
Which is why, of course, I'm naturally inclined to wonder when Catherine will become a mummy.
I think it won't be long. She's pushing 30, plus that's just what the royals do - they produce heirs. I say before next May there's an announcement. Maybe not a baby...but a royal bump watch.
My friend Jenni says not a chance - not with the Olympics in London, not with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
So we have a bet. Seeing as how the next generation of royals is not at all our business, not at all important in the grand scheme of our lives or more generally, the world, we've made a little wager....just to make the anticipation of the inevitable all the more fun.
There's a bottle of Veuve Clicquot on the line. Loser uncorks for the winner.
If you dare think about trival matters like this (for the record, Vegas already has odds on it) would you bet sooner...or later?
