Somebody's Good(?) News

I'm sitting here at a café on California Ave in West Seattle (I'm over here to feed jezel's cats). There were a couple of women sitting outside, and one got a call on her cellphone, apparently from a clinic. Because she looked shocked and amazed, and then immediately stubbed out her cig, and then came inside to ask if she could return her unsipped latté. It seems that the news that she just got was, was that she was pregnant.

She went back outside, and then proceeded to make a fast half dozen phonecalls, then spent a couple of minutes talking intently with her friend, and then they gathered up their stuff and walked quickly away.

I wonder if this was good news for her or not. It was hard to tell.
