I inadvertently figured out the ultimate on "hedging your bets" today.
Guess who went to Walgreens and bought the following:
1. 3 pack of pregnancy tests
2. Box of tampons
3. two big-ass bars of chocolate.
I didn't see the funny side of this until a few hours later (t-minus one chocolate bar and counting) but the fact that I can see the humor in the situation means that I guess I am going to be OK.
