Boris's girlfriend has it

Discussion in 'Personal' started by WB, Apr 4, 2020.

    I wish her and the unborn baby well.

    I also wish this thread shows more humanity than the "Boris has it" thread.

    I read she has the symptoms but hasn't been tested, so I'm not sure one can be sure she has it.

    You'd have to be pretty heartless not to wish her well under the circumstances.

    Not a good situation to be in. It must be horrendously worrying.

    On the positive side I think pregnant women are generally not at any added risk from coronavirus, though there probably isn't the data to know for sure. Often they are an at risk group for many ailments, though maybe not this one so much, usually being younger and in fairly good health is a positive too, though I'm sure I'd fret terribly if anyone I knew was in this position.

    Indeed. Can't be a nice time to be pregnant or have a new born baby.

    Aw. My neighbour's expecting her first imminently. Her devoted husband isn't going to be there. She's discharging herself from hospital the second the cord's cut. It's not ideal, is it. My squeamish husband was present for both of ours and spent The Moment looking at either the wall (1) or outa the window "That fog's not lifted, has it" (2).

    How long is it since the PM was told he had it?
    so what's the time gap between the 2 of them?

    She has my sympathy and I hope she gets better.

    O and that she gets over this Coronavirus infection too.

    It always amazes me that people who hate the values of the Tories prove so often that their values are worse.

    She, and all other pregnant women must be worried sick if they get it. I have every sympathy for her and wish her & her unborn child well.

    **aside**
    It's been several years since I pondered on the notion of a woman only ever being referenced as girlfriend of such and such, or such and such's wife. In fact, 17 posts in, and as object of discussion she still has no name of her own.

    It's almost like being inside the Bible, so I suppose that's ok then.

    Fair point. I should have named her in the thread title. Not actually naming her was a little insensitive on my part. I apologise.

    I started the thread keeping theme of the "Boris has it" thread.

    All the begetting in the Bible is only a man's role.
