Oh. my. goodness. In the past couple of weeks totally weird and awkward comments have just poured in from strangers galore. The other day, I was at a retail store, minding my own business while browsing a rack of clothes, when a man hollered at me from a couple racks away, "Oooo girl, you are pregnant!" Not even the "no sh*t" look I gave him and immediately turning away from him scared him off... he kept going. "You ready to pop?" Ready to pop something, but I did the gracious thing and just walked away.
Last night, I was at dinner with a few friends. As we were leaving, a lady (maybe mid-fifties) popped up from her own nearby table to ask me when I was due. It was pretty harmless, but kind of out of the blue. Oh, well, I simply responded, "next month." She then responded with, "good luck with that." Ok... thank you?
I bought a new car last weekend, and after all too much time working through the details and talking in between about everything else, including this baby on the way, that it's a girl, and yes, Liam is excited to be a big brother, etc. etc., the salesman said, "I know I shouldn't say this, and it's just because I'm old, but you sure you aren't having twins?" Why do people continue to speak after they "know they shouldn't say something?" Oh! I just remembered, I am having twins - oops, forgot! No, I'm just a hundred years pregnant.
And those are just some recent gems. It's crazy the comments I get from complete strangers. I think I might just start playing dumb and asking what they're talking about. What pregnancy?
