Once I got married, people started asking me a very personal question..
The conversation happens so frequently I can pretty much finish the sentence of the person I’m talking to. There are slight variations of the opening line, which usually starts with me making a broad statement about my life, future, health status, or sometimes even what I packed for lunch. And then it ends with a really really excited question asking if I am with child.
Or maybe I’m just fat.
Pretty sure I get this at least once a week.
Me: “oh! I almost forgot to tell you!”
Friend: “OMG, YOU’RE PREGNANT!?!?!?”
Me: “blah. My stomach hurts”
Friend: “OMG, ARE YOU PREGNANT?!
Me: “I have a doc appointment”
Friend: “OMG, ARE YOU PREGNANT?!”
I really don’t mind people asking
It doesn’t offend me at all. I just think it’s pretty funny that apparently everyone expects Ray and I will have children soon. And while it’s sweet to me that people are so excited for us…sorry, friends.. you’ll be waiting a while. :) I’m fairly open about my life…so I’m pretty sure that if/when we are pregnant, you will know.
I was pregnant once.
But that was for Halloween in college, so technically it doesn’t count.
The whole point of this post, is that I have learned there is a list of conversation openers I have to toilet-can for the time being.
- I feel sick
- I have a doctor’s appointment
- I need to take the day off
- I’m tired
- My stomach hurts
- I have something to tell you
- I forgot to tell you
- Guess what?!
- etc. etc. etc.
Oh, and if anyone is wondering… this is what I actually look like.. [photo taken tonight]
