So I need to know... should I be insulted by a gentleman who waited on me today calling me "REBA" ????
Now remember all you born and bred southerners... I was raised in the North, and that is why I am a little sketchy on this being a compliment thing... Maybe it is because I had someone recently say to me the following...
Clueless Person: "So, how much weight have you gained so far?"
Me: "None, actually."
CP: "Oh. How far along are you?"
CP:" Well, you know my husband said I looked much smaller with my last pregnancy too because I was SOOOO overweight when I got pregnant."
See, I did not respond. What am I supposed to say? Cause that is clearly a little dig, but its one of those If- you -call - me - out -on -this- I -will- act- shocked- and -like -I -was -making -an innocent -comment. Digs. So, I just sighed internally and said nothing.
So, would you consider it an obnoxious comment? Am I being overly sensitive? (Micah of course says Yes! I think that is because guys are so fundamentally different than woman. Seriously, if a guy puts on a bunch of weight his friends call him Lard butt and make him join a gym. If a girl gets fat her "catty" friends take her out for dessert and introduce her to afternoon television. Her TRUE friends however, take her to StarryB's then drink the fraps while going for a walk in the park or the mall. :) )
So, lay it on me. I can take it... well not really. I just say that because I will blame this whiny over sensitivity on my current state of knockedupedness. (Have you noticed, that is how I will hereto refer to this pregnancy. I feel like a rebel mom to be just typing it, and since the highlight of my day today was the 5$ off coupon on baby wipes at Costco, I am embracing it.)
Digress from what you ask?
Yes, this has been a most sporadic and pointless post, but since Chrissy and Dawn both ribbed me about not posting more often this is what you get.
So, this is 5 minutes (or 10 depending on how you faired with the hooked on phonics program) of your life that you will never get back, and all you have to show for it is the knowledge that I am now endorsing the phrase "knockedupedness".
I am thinking of having t-Shirts made with that on them... do you think they'd sell? Maybe with Reba's face on it???? ROFLOL............ :)
