Today's prompt: Re-Upload A Post You Wish More People Had Read
That's easy. I wish everyone I know would read this post, because then maybe they would stop asking.
"Are you guys trying yet?" is fine. But "When are you due?" will never be a good way to endear yourself to me.
A few thoughts on not being pregnant...
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.)
I'm linking this post to my sister's meme, Small Treasures Tuesday. Because avoiding that man at church for the past few months has been a treasure.
