Don't use the phrase, "Good News!"8:00 PM
Apparently if you are a married-Indian-woman, you cannot use the phrase "Good News" while sharing your any news (for the lack of a better word) unless you are letting people know that you are pregnant. You could buy a new house, land a new job, get a promotion, or even find a cure for cancer, but if you say, "I have a good news!" then everyone in India (or of Indian origin) would assume that you are informing them that you have a bun in your oven. The Mama-drama literally never leaves your side.
Worse is when your news doesn't meet their expectation. They give out a disappointed sigh! and let you know that they that thought it was the 'other' good news, but they are (sympathetically) very happy for your 'current' good news as well.
One day, when I have time to spare, I would definitely like to get to the bottom of, how pregnant women got claim to the phase, "good news". For now, all my 'good news' are introduced as 'something exciting' ... and to tell you the truth, it does seem a more apt description than the boring "good news".
