So I have to tell you a funny story of sorts. Last Wednesday was the first day of Parent/Teacher Conferences. I wanted to look nice, but don't have a whole lot that fits me right now. So I wore the only prego skirt I have. I tried on 10 different shirts that made me look like a blob, and finally decided on one despite the "frumpiness". It was one of those days where I was really feeling crappy about the way I looked and did not feel like facing 15 parents. Oh well. Life will go on. I headed to school, had a normal day, then after school had gotten out, Jaclyn and I were in the office talking to Terry. Another co-worker, who shall remain unnamed, walked into the office. Here is our convo:
Unnamed: I didn't know you were pregnant until today!
Me: Yup, I sure am!
U: When are you due?
U: Ya, I was thinking, "Hmmm, that girl sure dresses frumpy!"
M: Blank stare of disgust, ya well, I'm pregnant. (Turn away.)
Unnamed walks out. I turned to Jaclyn and Terry and asked, "Did you just hear that?!"
Lucky for the unnamed I am able to handle things with humor and laugh it off! It is now the joke of the school and I am known as Mrs. F for frumpy, not Foust!!
Seriously, what in the world was she thinking? Any normal woman knows that you do not say that to a woman, especially a pregnant woman!!!! What woman feels great about her body becoming distorted and fat? Just rub in the way I have to dress to be comfortable!!!
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving! I love this holiday!
