The Pregnant Lady who Forgot her Belly
When she Crossed the Street
 
NOTE: This is one of my Lifebites, a real-life life experience extracted as a Medicine Story to convey a life lesson.
She was in such a hurry that she crossed Manhattan’s East 97th Street after the semaphore’s light had turned red for her. Holding her big belly, she scurried across the street. She must have been about seven months pregnant.
I was strolling down 97th street with a friend, moving towards Madison Avenue, happily chatting after a delicious lunch. As we reached the avenue we got the green light and began to cross. We saw her as she launched forward.
I was stroke dumb in the middle of a sentence as my friend and I watched —our mouths wide open— what happened next.
