Hmmmm

So, it seems that if I write something on my blog, it will come true, since I was just at the gas station and the attendant asked me, "When are you due?"
Ah, the ever popular question.  I wanted to scream at her.  "UNLESS SOMEONE IS SO PREGNANT THAT THEY ARE WADDLING AROUND AND YOU CAN TELL THEIR BELLY IS SO HARD IT COULD CUT GLASS PLEASE NEVER EVER ASK A WOMAN IF SHE IS PREGNANT."
Instead, I said. "I just delivered." 
Thought maybe I would dodge that bullet.
"What did you have?"
Shit.  I don't want to be here anymore.  I started to shake.  Spit something out, ran to my car and starting sobbing hysterically.
I am just fat, lady.  Seriously.  Just fat.

But, so I'm thinking since I wrote that just yesterday I was worried about that happening and sure enough, it did...
"I am worried that we shouldn't go to my mom's for a week because that will be the time someone puts an offer on the house."

*just to be clear, I'm not worried at all, but hey, you never know!

Oh, honey, I'm so sorry. I hate that question, too, although for much more selfish reasons. I'm just plain overweight, yet when someone asks me for some reason I always feel like I have to make a joke to ease THEIR embarrassment. :(

Boy do I agree with you. I never try to guess on something like that. When my 91 year old aunt was passing away last year I was with her in the nursing home and because of her current state of mind she asked me "does he know your pregnant", my 85 year old Dad was with me and she was referring to him. I said "Blanche I'm 56 years old and I'm just FAT!" It was really kinda of cute and she just wouldn't get off that subject for days on end. So come blog masters, let's get that house sold !
