How, using a pregnancy test, can you discover if you are pregnant without having to squeeze out a single drop of urine. In fact, without even opening the packet?
Um, well no, before I give you the answer, you have to do the test first.
Have a look at this picture:
Admittedly not the clearest of pictures, I surreptitiously snapped it at my local Superdrug store this afternoon. It shows two boxes of pregnancy tests one (to the left) contains two tests and is for sale at £10.79. The other (on the right) contains just one test - exactly the same brand and sensitivity - but, whilst it normally retails at £7.99, it is selling with the offer buy one get one free.
So which one would you buy. Two in one pack for £10.79, or two in two packs for £7.99?
If you chose to pay £10.79 for the two-pack then allow me to congratulate you on your pregnancy.
Because surely only the nappy-headed amongst you would consider spending a needless £2.80 for the same number of tests.
If not, you're with me. And you'll be delighted to know I invested in quite a few boxes.
'Cause nothing says pessimism like a basket full of pregnancy tests.
