i really did intend my next post to be about last saturday, but this was too special not to share first.
today i went up to the 3rd floor (party floor) to get me some dr. pepper. while i'm putting dr. p into my lunch bag, a cleaning woman (cw) says to me:
you lose weight?
cw: you have the baby, yes? (motions with her hands to create a large belly)
me: (staring oddly) no…
me: no, i didn't have a baby.
cw: oh… (looks sad)
me: (does she think i LOST a baby?) no, it's ok, i wasn't pregnant.
naturally i have heard of overweight women being inappropriately asked if they were pregnant (when's your baby due?? oops!). however i have never heard of the reverse -- someone who's lost weight, and people assumed they WERE pregnant, and then ask about the baby.
and i gotta tell ya, the whole thing - a little surreal.
