    Nice one Way… as your partner in YR in '02, I was torn between sadness and elation for you, knowing intimately your journey. Alas, I was massively fooled twice today. The first was when Ali informed me that she was pregnant with our third child, at which I seriously nearly had a F$&@ing heart attack. Thank God both aren't true πŸ™‚

  23. Andy says:

    I totally believed the part about selling to Yoga Journal, because I've been thinking that is something you should totally do.

  24. rvalentine says:

    And after my friend and I talked for half an hour about how devestated we were!
    Glad it was a joke!
