thanks for the clarification

Today I had a meeting with a lady I work with.  I went to her office and sat down; she started talking.  She talks a lot.

Anyway, mid-thought, she looks at me and says, "How pregnant are you?  You're four months along, right?"

I laughed and told her I was almost 8 months.

She said, "You're hardly bigger than a minute.  Is everything okay?"

I assured her everything was fine.  I told her I saw the OB this morning and he said I was right on target.

She didn't believe me.

So I stood up and gave her the profile view.

And she said, "Oh, yeah!  You're really showing.  You're HUGE!"

I thanked her for her backwards comment.

And then she went on, "See, the way you're sitting you just look like you could be on one of those commercials for the miracle jeans that hold everything in or the magic girdles."

"Are you saying that I look fat?", I asked.

"Well, yes," she answered, "but fat like you should be in a commercial."

Some folks know how to really make your day! Obviously her opinions are of little or no value. (Except for a blog laugh.) VolMom
