In a shori while, we discovered (hat we were definitely "expecting" ana so took the first step out of the honeymoon singe without the slightesl realization of what was taking place. "How come husbands in the movies never seem to know beforehand?" I asked John as he consulted the calendar. "She faints, or drops a little bootee thai she's knitting, and he acts as flabbergasted as if he were never even there!" John laughed. Although I joined in his laughter, I still was flrm about not revealing the news until after my diploma was secured, and John finally agreed. Despite his personal excitement, however, his professional attitude was as annoyingly consistent as ever. First he decided that he would look after me prenatally, and call in Dob at the end since it was considered unethical for a physician to deliver his own wife. Then, with the practical arrangements thus rapidly completed, he delegated the whole business of having a baby to the unimpressive cubby hole reserved for prosaic, routine cases in mcciical practice. "It's a perfectly natural function," he began, like a second- grader reciting the pledge to the flag. "The most important thing to remember is to forget the entire matter." This conclusion was offered like an obstetrician address- ling a class for expectant mothers. I Keeping busy was no task for jme—at that time, or anytime since. il was soon fully recovered, back I in the oflice, helping John and jreaping my full share of cngross- jment and often laughter. If dis- [ traction was all that John pre- i scribed, then his office was the I ideal place to get it. • • • A ND "forget it" was exactly fx what John proceeded to do. When I developed spells of nau- sea, and complained because I had to SPieak out of the lecture hall at school, he merely said with his usual exasperating nonchalance toward non-dangerous uncomfortable symptoms: "Morning sickness is common enough, and of no significance at all. Don't worry." Besides keeping busy in the oflice, I [ound myself Hung Into the final throes of cramming at school. The effort of covering the whole year's law work in preparation for the concluding examinations, as well as the state bar, was no negligible matter. "Thank Heaven that's all over!" I told John one day after the last paper had been handed in, and I came home from 1 school for the last time. "Think yon passed?" asked John, as I fell wearily on the couch. "I prayed hard enough," 1 answered confidently, as if prayer couttl alter the facts of how much two plus two ninke, or what Justice Marshall said more than 100 years ago. "When's graduation?" he asked equally confident. "Got something for me?" I spoke with renewed interest. John's face fell 2,0 points. "Gifts again!" he groaned. "I clean forgot. Don't worry, though, now I'll remember. 1 tell you though, sweetie," he went on half jokingly] "the Bible says Jacob served seven years for Rachel, but sometimes I think that modern man never finishes serving." "It wasn't such a horrible job for you when we were engaged, and first married," I answered, trying to joke hack, but not succeeding very well. "You used lo get me loads of things then." "That's just it," said John. "A fellow kind of runs out of ideas. Besides, I've got a lot more on my mind now.** "Well, anyway," I said deliberately turning away from this ScyLla and Charybdis topic, "you'd hotter wait antJ sec how I mn!c< out." 1 made out pretty well, all things considered, and on graduation morning 1 set out proudly for the commencement exercises with John, my mother and my fattier, and Lizzie loo, as John called our expected. A F^'EK the ordinary hectic farewells and vows ol eternal friendship had hcen freely ex- chnng«l with even some classmates 1 had never spoken to tie- fore, my family party drove clown i" my father's car to lunch al one of those thrillingly expensive restaurants, where the menu actually reads like the financial budget ol a foreign republic. In these vestifiial establishments, whose sole raison d'etre is perhaps to cater lo groups like ours where celebration rather than digestion is the primary consideration, tiny potatoes are presented individually as if they were gold nuggets; and the service is as elegantly protracled as an inaugural procession lo Chopin's Funeral March. On the way home my mother said, "I'd be a lot more excited about your being a lawyer, if you were unmarried like the others in your class. Tell me, dear, what do you plan doing now?" "Sleep," I replied Immediately. "I'm going to sleep until 12 o'clock every day to make up for the years of jumping out of bed and rushing out. Then I'll make my place in the world." This worthy ambition lasted only one week, after which time the full significance ot my graduation made itself fell. "1 ean't believe Ihnl I'll never go back to school again, that a whole part of my life is over." I told Joh)i thoughtfully o:ie morning. "That's how I felt too." said John. "But you'll get over it. In fact, now I believe li'ifc Begins at Graduation." The shadow of change carne over me then for the fSk time and 1 experienced a s<£cnnscioiis reluctance about Iraving the comfortable familiarity, and moving ahead.
