I learned today that a divorced friend got married a few days ago and is pregnant, yipidedoo. It has to be said she was never a true plankton because she always seemed to find men in a way that defied belief. Younger than me, that had got to be it. (By about twelve years, I am guessing). I don’t know her enormously well, but pretty well, and I like her. I met the boyfriend (now husband) once at a gig a few months ago and he struck me as the warmest, friendliest person I had met in a long time. He seemed properly good and kind and winning. It was an intuitive feeling I had and she told me I was spot on. She has had her fair share of hell (nightmare substance-abusive ex-husband; single mother, no money; ill parent etc).
In fact, she has just rung me and she sounds so incredibly happy. She cannot believe the turn her life has taken.
This is a plankton happy ending, even if she was only ever a quasi plankton.
Still. Good news where you can get it.
