We we going door to door in hazy, hot and humid summer. We were standing in the sun witnessing to two Catholic women for a long time. I started to brown out. I decided to rest my forehead on a cool iron railing in the shade next to the house. One of the women looked at Nick in an accusatory fashion and asked, "Is she pregnant???" Nick threw up his hands, looked terrified, and said, "I don't know!!!" as if to say, 'It's not my fault!' I was in my first trimester and had not told anyone yet. Poor guy. They offered me a glass of O.J. Perked me up. (Nick is now disceased.)
