Conversation between me and a sweet lady at the library

Sweet lady: Okay, can I ask? Are you married?

Me: Yes, I am.

SL: And are you pregnant?

Me: Yep!

SL: Then congratulations!

. . . okay . . .

Am kind of wondering how this conversation would have gone if I'd answered "No" to the first question. Any thoughts?

Will be pondering this tonight at the Utah State Fair, until I'm too busy with my annual deep-fried peanut butter & jelly sandwich to ponder anything except why my left arm feels so dang tight and ouchy. The Precii are signing up to compete in the Mutton Bustin' competition, so please cross fingers that their names get called. And that they don't get their heads kicked in by a sheep. Thank you.

I'm thinking she would have not wished you a congratulations....but rather given you a dirty look w/ a raised eyebrow. (And then called you a whore.)

That's just my guess.

Oh, brother. People are morons. I kind of almost wish you had said no. Just so you could trout slap her with your eyes.

Mmmm...deep-fried goodness. I'm jealous.

What if you were giving the baby up for adoption and you were single? What is with people getting all up in your business in public. Maybe because there is public evidence of a private act growing under your shirt.

And then I'm wondering how it would've gone if you would've answered no to the second question.

Sigh. Thanks for the laugh. Good luck with that PB&J. I've never had one of that variety, but I am now a fan of the deep fried Oreos.

I was at a surprise party for a friend recently. The theme was neon and I wore a bright red shirt dress over brown pinstripe pants. A group of 3 friends inquired if I was pregnant. I responded in the negative.

So much for thinking my new shirt dress was slimming....

I thought I had your email, but apparently not, so I was gonna ask...where the heck is the booth that does the deep fried goodness?? I can't find it and I want to try it!
