You guys, it happened. And I am not happy. I was in church on Sunday, just minding my own business, when a man came up to me and stared at my stomach.
"When are you due?"
"I'm not pregnant." I said, horrified.
He laughed. "No, really. When are you due?"
I was speechless. "She isn't pregnant" said Kurt, coming up behind me.
There was a pause. A long, awkward pause as the man looked back and forth between me, Kurt, and my not-pregnant stomach.
"Oh. Wow." Then he walked away.
Kurt and I just stared at each other.
Next time that happens, I'm going to smile, pat my tummy, and say "April. Of 2012, butthead."
(Only I might not sensor it. It'll probably depend on how much chocolate I've had that day)
Then I'll punch him in the face. Or maybe I'll just go cry (Also depending on my chocolate intake).
Now I'm not sure what to say when I see this man. I'm thinking we will probably both pretend like it didn't happen. But it's sure gonna be awkward.
Have you guys ever had this happen to you?? Or maybe you've been the one to ask this question. Please let me know. I could use a few laughs, and I'd love to not be the only person in this situation!
Now please excuse me while I go eat my weight in vending machine candy bars.
(kidding, of course. I'm pretty sure I'm never going to eat again.)
