She Asked For It

Scene: Before Christmas, in line to pay...let's just say, lots of people behind me. A conversation with the cashier.

Can't Keep Her Mouth Shut: "So, are you pregnant?"

Me: "Yes."

Can't Keep Her Mouth Shut: "Oh, I thought so. Because if you weren't I was gonna say, 'Girl, you better do something about that belly.'"

Me: "Ha, ha."

Can't Keep Her Mouth Shut: "How far along are you?"

Me: "20 weeks."

Can't Keep Her Mouth Shut: "Oh, you're still early. {Pause} So, why are you so big?"

Me: "Well, I am little so I pop out pretty quickly."

Can't Keep Her Mouth Shut: "Yeah, but people don't usually get that big so fast."

Me: "This is my fourth pregnancy, fifth baby, with no living children, so I show faster than normal."

Can't Keep Her Mouth Shut: "Good luck with that."

Me: "Yeah, thanks."

Yes indeed. She DID ask for it.

Gee whiz! Whatever happened to manners and thoughtful discourse?

I just can't believe the nerve of some people. I'm glad you didn't hold back on her. I just wish someday, if that ever happened to me, I'd be quick-witted enough to say, "Well, at least I have an excuse for being so fat. What's your excuse for being so ugly?"

"Can't keep her mouth shut" has probably never even been pregnant.
