Don’t worry, what’s the worst that could happen?
Lisa rubbed her belly, just as the baby kicked.

She pulled back the curtain and watched her husband Leo run towards the front door.

He threw open the door and yelled, “I got it.”

Lisa just gave him the look.

He said, “Branch Manager, it’s mine.”

Lisa frowned, “When do we leave?”

“We leave tomorrow.”

Lisa looked down at her belly and back at Leo, “Where will we live?”

Leo took her hand, “Don’t worry, it’s all worked out. I have the address. Trust me, this is going to be great. Happy North Dakota is a boom town, oil has made it into one of the fastest growing places in America, but real estate is at a premium, so the company leased a house for us and it’s move in ready. We hop on a plane and we will be there tomorrow night.”

“What about the baby?“

“You’re not due for five more weeks, and when you see this house, you’re just going to love it, when my boss described it to me, well all I can say is it sounds fantastic.”

The next morning when Leo and Lisa got up, he said, “Where did I put the address?” He finally found it, Lisa had used it as a coaster.

They arrived at the airport and eight hours later arrived in Happy N.D., greeted by a sharp cold wind. Leo hailed a taxi and gave him the address, when they pulled in the driveway Lisa’s heart sank. The front door looked like it was about to fall off and when they went in, it was horrible, she cried! At that very moment her water broke.

Great News! Lisa gave birth to a healthy boy. Turns out Leo had the wrong address, so Lisa’s no longer threatening him with murder.
